Downloadable Chrome News

Sunday March 28th, 1999

Two news items for those interested in Mozilla's "Downloadable Chrome". First, David Hyatt has posted to news.mozilla.org his first draft at the downloadable / configurable chrome spec.

Second, Steve Morrison has announced the creation of his "XUL Tool" site. Steve's site is a repository for Mozilla themes, and soon you will be able to create your own theme via a simple HTML interface.

"Sites can use window.open to open a new window with their own set of chrome, but they won't be allowed to change the user's chrome easily. Having the chrome change from site to site would be a thoroughly unpleasant experience."

Will a signed script be required to change the chrome in a new window opened using window.open()??? or just in the main browser window??? I think the page author should be allowed full controll of windows opened using window.open(), and no controll over the main browser window!!! This would keep the user safe from unwanted attacks on the main browser window, and still give developers the controll they need to create true web based applications.
