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.

To CPT -- by definition this is not proprietary. Proprietary implies hidden, while the source code to this feature is avalable to everyone. It may be considered commercial though.

Whether this is a good thing or not is another matter. It better be configurable (changing the behaviour of the button labeled back for instance would be bad).
