New Widget Sample Online

Thursday January 7th, 1999

If you have been following the XPFE newsgroup, you may have come across the debate about widgets in the new cross-platform mozilla application. The final decision was for the widgets displayed on HTML pages (radio-buttons, drop-down menus, etc.) and dialog boxes to be platform-neutral for the moment, with the possibility of adding in native widget-sets later. This new platform neutral widget set requires new widget images, and the new samples have come online here.

German Bauer is the creator of these sample images, and his current thoughts can be read here. This post is really worth checking out if you have a moment.

Please be advised: this is a Work In Progress! Please don't flame the creator of these widgets in talkback. However, please feel free to post constructive criticism or other thoughts on this issue.

I've got to agree with the people here that are stressing making everything themeable. It can be a very cool thing to be able to tailor the look of your entire desktop around a certain theme, and then when you have the occasional application that breaks the design it ruins the whole mood. :)
