Downloadable Chrome News

Sunday March 28th, 1999

Two news items for those interested in Mozilla's "Downloadable Chrome". First, David Hyatt has posted to 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.

I think the option is necessary, and gauging from the large, hostile response from TUCOWS customized IE5 <> , I think many people agree--and that was all over adding a measley Hotbot button. The wookie head would be cool, but you have to let me choose it first. I do think that Netscape is SORELY lacking in the customizable department at this point--if they want me to forget Windows they have to be able to make my computer interface LOOK like a Netscape machine. Imagine at least a DESKTOP theme God forbid. Do you know how shocked I was to find no official Netscape desktop theme? But still, I agree that the choice to change my UI should remain with me, not somebody else. If Disney can do it, so can the idiot that did that Melissa thing and his home page. You can't get hosed just because you make the mistake of visiting a page.
