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 like it! It sounds great - I hve changed my mind, you are correct that the changing UI should not confuse users - it should be a choice to have the new Disney skin. Having said that, some Javascript could automate it all for them if they select a YES button.

Get your marketing boys and girls to call Disney and others to get some rapid deployment going!

I didn't imagine the skin would stay up AFTER visiting the site, it would only appear while surfing the current site, thereafter the previous skin would reappear.

Lets not get to hung up on authentication, can't we just follow the WINAMP (which really whips the Lamas ass!) model?

BTW It was a machine that went PING! not BOING! (for future ref.)
