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?

the 3D-ness is still minimal, compared to average windows apps at least (i triple boot win98, linux and beos).. the "search" button is the only element i can see in m17 that has a real 3D look to it.. i think it would help to set off the tool bar from the personal favorites bar by some kind of 3D-effect, for instance (which is done by the new modern skin).. this is what i meant why the old modern was something to get used to, kind of a lack of differentiation.. whether the realization is much better than a 2D version might be is not beyond argument.. and again: our aesthetic preferences can (and even should) differ, that's why skinability is so important..
