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.

Okay, it's not that bad -- it only choked in three or four places.

One or two <html: /> tags had unquoted attribute values, and some of the scripts had <, >, or & in them.

I think XUL is really wicked, but I worry about what will happen if stuff like this is allowed to get through (i.e., lots of people will write not-really-XML XUL code, cf. some of Navigator's looseness with tag 'parsing').
