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.

That was a very illuminating response.

I didn't realize that the skins were actually part of the UI. I thought they were more like Kaleidoscope schemes that you find on the Macintosh platform; not really part of the system, just something laid on; just as real chrome isn't a car bumper in and of itself, but can be applied to a car bumper. It appears in this case, chrome IS the bumper.
