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.

"The whole point of the "new" widgets wat to have a cross platform look and feel"

A XP 'look & feel' means diddly squat to most Windows users. All it signifies is 'less than it could have been'

"Betcha IE 2001 will have XUL..."

I wouldn't hold your breath.

Although I share no love for MS, I can't blame them for getting out of the OS/2 arena. IBM didn't, and still doesn't, have the foggiest concept of the end user.

I remember when IBM thought it was a divine achievment that it's OS/2 booted in three minutes. Their 'minds' were still in mainframes, so three minutes was fast compared to a 15 minute boot of VMS.
