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.

Mark, I think you seriously need to calm down. Perhaps a valium is in order.

So, maybe user definable (paintable usually) interfaces are all the rage at the moment, and "oh wow" they're so cool et...

But hell, man! That's not even close to as cool as what Mozilla's got going for it! Skins may be fun and jolly, take up more teen-geek time than your average drive-by and give website opportunities to spotty kids with pirate music fetishes (only kidding)...

But it hardly warrants a doubly-submitted "quaking-in-my-slippers-oh-my-god-i-can't-believe-it's-not-windoze-grey" reaction, hey? Maybe you should leave that kind of fanfare for say, a release?!?

Mmm, M4...
