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?

#74 Franken-Modern?

Looks like parts of Modern 2.0 are in the latest nightly (I'll call it "Franken-Modern")

Unfortunately, the mix is currently not very good; the 2.0 parts clash quite badly with the 1.0 parts; it makes me actually long for Modern 1.0 (something I never thought I'd hear myself say).

However, I'm guessing that they'll be putting more and more of 2.0 in the tree over the course of the next few days. With any luck, everything'll be in there in about a week.
