MozillaZine's ChromeZone Now Open!

Monday May 24th, 1999

Steve Morrison, creator of the XULTool, has joined MozillaZine (as some of you may already know). He has been hard at work getting the XULTool working on our site, and we're pleased to announce that the ChromeZone is now online.

Now, with a simple form, you can change the look and feel of Mozilla, and create your own themes! You can also choose from some ready-made themes we have available. You can also send your own themes to ChromeZone for addition to our site.

So, fire up apprunner and head over to the chromeZone.

We got a lot of great entries for our little "name our new chrome area" contest, but in our final vote, "ChromeZone" came out on top. A number of people submitted the name "ChromeZone" or a variation for our contest. Clayton Scott was the first, however, and his prize is a stuffed Mozilla doll from Netscape. I know we didn't promise any prizes for the contest, but we wanted to give something to the winner.

Thanks to everyone for you contributions, and if you have any suggestions for the chromeZone, let us know.

Microsoft *has* spent millions on user-interface research. One of these days they might even use this research in a product...

Anyone who thinks Microsoft has the slightest semblence of a clue about user interfaces should listen to someone who does tech support. Their interfaces just annoy techies but they really confuse the average user.

Lastly, in answer to earlier comments, yes, Microsoft does have the majority share of the market right now. However, there's a lot of signs this is changing (e.g. Apple's resurgence) and once you subtract people who have IE because they're forced to (corporate standard or Win98 users) the numbers aren't nearly so uneven for Netscape.
