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 understand the idea of having a "download out skin here" option, but let websites design their skin directly into the page - wont use something if it adds complexity to their site, but they will use something if the user doesn't get hassled into making decisions.

They don't have a button asking if you want borders, frames or adverts, do they?

Just give it to them so they can make their own choices. Don't kake choices FOR your target market. Just give it to them to decide.
