Downloadable Chrome Spec Updated

Thursday April 8th, 1999

David Hyatt has updated the downloadable chrome spec.

The spec reflects functionality as of M4. Of importance to web application developers is the new information on altering chrome via signed javascript. This could allow for adding and subtracting, disabling and enabling of buttons in the application's toolbar. This can allow the application toolbar too keep in synch with the content in the browser window.

Revisions have been made to the spec, so please check it out.

Does anyone else think that this is just more proprietary crap? I may be in the minority here, but I'd rather have a Mozilla with complete html4/CSS1 NOW, rather than Mozilla with chrome later.

Ask yourselves, if MS had done this, would it be well accepted, or would it be rejected as an effort to balkanize the web while not supporting existing standards? Be honest.
