Modern 2.0

Wednesday August 23rd, 2000

Netscape has begun working on landing the new modern skin for both Mozilla 1 and Netscape 6. The current plan is to dump the current modern skin when the new one has fully landed.

While the skin looks better than the first version of Modern, we think this time could be better spent on improving the Classic skin, which is preferred by the majority of users, rather than working on a skin that has already been shunned by most in the community. What are they thinking?

#55 it's a start anyway

seems to me if they're working on just toggling a few buttons, they'll probably have a lot of other configuration options later. I'd hope so anyway. Although I don't like the throbber so much myself, it gives me something to look at while a page is loading. And actually I had plans to modify moz so that when you click the throbber it toggles JavaScript on/off - I hate pop up windows. Of course I planned on making thr throbber smaller too.
