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.

Web based applications can go way farther then just simple "My Netscape" clones. With the combination of full DOM and CSS support Mozilla actually has the potential to become a development platform. It will be possible to create real applications that look and feel just like their desktop counterparts (without the need to download and install disk space eating executables). Downloadable chrome just adds to this possibility. It gives web authors the ability to create OS level interfaces saving them the hundreds of lines of JavaScript and CSS code it takes to replicate them. I can't wait for a final product!!!
