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.

What about only allowing the author to update the chrome on a window that he/she created using Then if the author wanted to offer it as a permanent change for the browser he/she could use a .jar file(wich allready has built-in security) to download and overwrite the main xul file. This would prevent malicious hacker from crippling the main browser window, while allowing web programmers to add OS level interfaces to there pages.
