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.

"All it signifies is 'less than it could have been'"

What exactly does the Windows Native UI do that XUL doesn't, or won't when the preposed functionality comes into play?

And don't say "data-binding" cause that little "feature" isn't used in most MS apps, and doesn't apply here anywhoo...

I think its been pretty obvious that the thrust of Mozilla development has been "Windows First, other OS's later" and in that respect, They will probably bring more functionality down the pipe to the Less common OS's than "Dumbing down" to their level.
