Chameleon News

Thursday October 26th, 2000

The Chameleon Mozilla Theme Builder is making steady progress. A new "border" function outlines all of the elements on a toolbar for easy selection. Also, you can now change the hover, hover:active, and disabled states of all of the elements. You can see the new features at the Chameleon screenshots page, and you can download the latest builds from their installation page.

It looks fantastic, but unfortunately changing bitmaps doesn't seem to work yet, or did I miss it?

Even in this early version I am able to get rid of the stupid "arrow" thing at the left of the toolbar... but I can't get it to save the theme properly, so I can't apply it properly. Still this is a 0.2 version so it's not bad at all.

So as soon as they have a working version, and one that also supports the personalbar and menubar, I can finally eradicate those stupid, useless 'collapse toolbar' handles. Without needing to learn how to code the CSS (ok, I know CSS, but I mean, specific to Mozilla's themes) or XUL or whatever. Yay :)

I will be focusing on all of the save and preview related methods on monday.

Right now this is still in bad regression mode. Horked! ;-)

If things go well, by the end of next week we should be good w/ this.

Thanks for checking it out.

I've been looking for Isriya Paireepairit's Netscape 3 skin for Mozilla, and the only links that Google gives me are ones that point to Chromezone, which appears to not exist anymore. So where can I get said skin?

Check out x.themes.org, allmost all that was available at ChromeZone can be found there. Mine is also there: 'Alfred'.

My theme (Navigator 3) is no longer working with M18. and I haven't developped it anymore. Cause I'm making 'Lopburi Flat' theme to submit Netscape6 contest and now making Lopburi Flat compatable with M18. (Can find it in x.t.o). If you wanna use Navigator3 UI, please look for UltraClassic

#5 Anyone else having installation problems?

Once I've installed Chameleon, when I try to run it from Moz, it doesn't come up; but there is an untitled, invisible window according to the listing in the Window menu (i.e., there's a blank spot at the bottom, with no corresponding window visible)
