New Sample UI Posted

Monday March 22nd, 1999

We at Mozillazine have been playing around with XUL/CSS, and have created our own UI. It is similar to the old configurable chrome in mozillaclassic. To try it, simply rename the navigator.xul file to navigator.xu~, which is in the res/samples/ directory of the m3/nightly builds, download the new navigator.xul (*shift-click!*) file and place it in the same directory. This will download all the chrome and other UI elements when you load apprunner. Note, this will not change any UI except for the browser window.

In the UI, we killed the second/personal toolbar, added our own menu, changed the colors and buttons, and added some functionality. You can now load a new window, Messenger, or Composer from the bottom toolbar/component bar.

That is the sexiest non-human thing I have seen since I downloaded skins for my WINAMP ("really whips the Llamas ass!") - I know you call it ZUL, but the public calls it "skins" and I suggest someone creates a store of skins, becoz baby, you aint seen NUTHIN yet!!

This is going to be soooo huge, it needs to be built right into Mozilla (winamp has over 1175 skins)!! I can't get over it!! SKINS that are as cool as that!!

One other thing though, Winamp competitors allow non-regular shapes and see through backgrounds. Can Mozilla do THAT? WOOF!
