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?

#78 But what about those darn widgets?

This skin looks a lot better than Modern 1.0 (which looks like a draft of a skin rather than a skin itself IMO).

I think the Classic skin was a major improvement. But what worries me a lot is that the widgets on web pages haven't been changed - they've still got that Mozilla native look. I don't really have a problem with the fact that they are Mozilla native widges - it's just that they're so extremely ugly (especially the radio buttons).
