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?

That may be true in general but the people that are involved in Mozilla now are all pretty vocal because they are involved so they could contribute; if only with an idea or an opinion. Of the vocal opinions, a VAST majority have said they dislike or STRONGLY dislike Modern/1.

I've showed Mozilla to a lot of people at work and not a SINGLE person has said anything positive about the visuals while most have reacted within 5 seconds of seeing the browser with "holy shit! that's UGLY!". This is until yesterday when I showed Modern/2 to a guy at work and his reaction was "hey! that's pretty cool! is that the next Netscape browser? it looks nice!".

Modern/2 must be doing something rihgt. :)
