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.

hey -- very cool. working on customizing the chrome now for a client and have a question -- I'm confused as to whether a site will be able to force/offer-the-option to obtain their custom chrome when the user arrives at the site?

also, a second question: is it possible to have the toolbar oriented vertically on the left or right side? so that the html display window is next to it instead of above/below it.

if anyone would be interested in collaborating on new chromes, let me know -- I'd love to participate.
