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.

"make sure that all the UI elements that exist outside of the basi toolbars (pop ups, dialogs, etc.) should look, feel, behave and render like native widgets."

Unfortunatley, XUL won't accomplish this.

Also, I'm not getting at a MS 'look & feel'... but rather a native UI 'look & feel'.

Netscape Communicator has a decent native UI... set aside it's security dialogs, smartupdate dialogs, etc... Corel WordPerfect Suite has a well crafted native UI as well... as do many other Win32 applications.
