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.

an XP look and feel is important for most web users because there is no consistent UI on the web. Every website has its own way of doing things. It would be nice if I had a tree control for my website. I guess I could try to make my own but it would even nicer if I used the same one Netscape would use for Netcenter. Or if I needed a progress meter I'd use Netscape's and everyone would know what it was. We can't use native controls on websites which means that either everyone does his/her own thing or we standardize on a set of web controls. But we can't have standardized web controls unless Netscape uses them throughout the app and Netcenter. Once that happens the web as a whole -not just the browser- becomes easier to use.
