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?

#59 Don't be absurd.

Navigation buttons work with history and the present page. Bookmarks jump out of the flow by arbitrarily setting your location to something unconnected with either your history or the present page (except, perhaps, by coincidence).

My point? Home is a bookmark, not a form of navigation. Anyone who can't see this is eminently unqualified to discuss the issue. Bitch about not having your favorite button in your favorite place if you want, but don't pretend that this little "Home == navigation" semantic folly adds any weight to your complaint.

Personally, I never use the thing, and I'd be happy to have it gone forever, but that's just me.
