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?

#99 It did look like a draft

It did look like a draft. You were always asking yourself: are they really going to ship with this thing?

I always thought like it looked like a bunch of placeholders, much as I do like the color blue (dark blue). There was one night where the Classic skin icons bled over into the Modern skin and the component bar icons in particular looked really cool against that blue. But it was a mutant bug, it got squashed.
