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?

So, you're saying Netscape, as a company, should not put resources into skins other than the Classic one? "letting the classic skin languish" are pretty strong words.

Also, bloat, performance, and stability are critical, but, UI designers can't really help in those areas.
