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.

I downloaded M3 on Saturday, it ran fine that day, but ever since then, I get a situation sort of like Jerry's: viewer and apprunner both crash on startup with the error "Unable to create ContentViewer for type text/xul" -- OTOH, the 0320 build has been doing so well that I've not bothered to check the server for a new one until now (gotta keep up with the Joneses and all that <g>).

The new UI "look" rocks, btw.
