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.

But Disney are microshite people, aren't they? They would ignore mozilla, so as not to pick on Billy G.

As for the possibility of a trojan horse in a 'skin', yeah, that is very dangerous. But, if you use digital signatures, that means me, who lives in Australia, cannot make 'skins', because no CA will give developer certs to Australians. And little Johnny Howard wont set up a national CA.

So, I think a central repository of skins would be the best idea, checked by people. NSCP could integrate it into Netcenter, and have a menu option - Download new Skins.
