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?


#63 Still ugly!

I find the skin to be just as ugly as the old one for all the same reasons. Actually, it's a bit uglier because it's got that semi Kais power tools/bryce 3d look to it and those programs have some of the worst interfaces I've ever seen. The cleaner and smaller the buttons the better. These big chileish buttons suck. Blue sucks too. It's a very late 80's/early 90's color and prominent on all of the amature web sites.
