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.

Every one is so worried about having there crome magicly altered just by visiting a site, they arn't paying attention to what Dave Hyatt is saying. He said that if a site wants to change the crome in your main browser window they will have to use a signed script (which produces a big warning message before it does anything). He said that the user has total control over there crome (the're even including an all elese fails reset defaults button). He said the only power given to web designers is the power to change the crome in a window they open using JavaScript in the first place, and that crome will only apply to that window. They allready let you remove all the crome from a JS window, why not let you change it???
