Netscape Revamps My Netscape

Thursday April 26th, 2001

While we normally don't post news on Netscape stuff, this is one that we wanted to talk about. Netscape today turned off customized content on My Netscape. This means that our rdf channel there, as well as our sidebar, no longer work. We have been working on a new sidebar panel for a while, and this will help push it along. As soon as it's ready, we'll let you know.

If you want to complain about this, we highly encourage you to email Netscape and ask for your custom content back.

No need for XBL - you can write the same repositioning code in DHTML quite easily by using absolute positioning in CSS and changing the left and top properties with JavaScript mouse event handlers. I wrote a cross-browser DHTML library when I wanted to learn DHTML some years ago and the stuff includes drag support for window-look-alikes and it works just fine on IE, Netscape 4 and Mozilla with nothing more than a couple of thin wrapper methods that branch based on the browser.
