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?

#57 Great work...

I actually liked the original Modern Skin, but I think this is a good improvement on it. I hope bug 41499 is fixed in it though. <>

As for buttons and prefs etc., I want to knwo if there will be a toggle to quiet a lot of the insignificant whining about the home and reload buttons. And as far as the "useless" bar goes, some of us like the personal link toolbar. If you don't, then turn it off.

That's where the Home button belongs anyway. Think about it. The Home button takes you to a website, just like any other bookmark.
