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.

To rgelb, You didn't insult WordPerfect 8. Granted I don't think Word is as bad as ICQ, can anything be that bad. I used Word for several years and the switch to WordPerfect was painless and I was glad to do it.

I think most people know what Word looks like. Take a look at WP8, minimal mods (2 extra buttons and I moved a toolbar to the side). Here it is <http://members.xoom.com/Tekhir/Images/Image1.gif>

And now back to Mozilla. A Large portion of the debate is centered on Win32 users and their UI. But there are several minor UIs for Windows. Win 3.x style not used much. Orginial Win95 style. IE4+/Win98 style. All have slight and sometime ugly changes. One of them being the draggable toolbars that don't expand to take up the entire screen, I find that ugly.
