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.

If you design strictly to w3c standards, your website won't look good in IE anyway (see the box acid test) therefore w3c compliance is "just another feature that only works in a specific browser". Opera won't do it either (and that's just css let alone DOM and decent javascript support). So what are standards good for if nobody else follows them? 1) if the browser follows standards then we know if it's working properly by checking standards support. 2) web designers can focus on features and better layout instead of working around browser bugs. Because mozilla is open source we can also expect a proliferation of non-Netscape browsers that can render the same content. I have to go. Star Wars awaits me
