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.

UPDATE!!

I have uploaded a new version of Navigator.xul. Get it now! This version got rid of the 2nd footer toolbar, cleaned out a lot of crap on the first one, and added the component bar to it. Also took out the animated gif, as it caused slowness, due to a known bug. Items I am still working on include a new thobber (Still uses my old MozBin chrome one), a better looking status bar, and more functionality. I originally designed this off of the m3 release, but I am about to get tonights build, and check for new stuff to add in.
