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?

I think that having a decent "Modern" is as crucial as having a decent "Classic". "Blue" wasn't getting it, it was just too plain, too much like a temporary UI. I say Netscape needs to devote equal time to both a new UI and a Classic one.
