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 Gecko is the only browser that works properly then it should be the standard, because Gecko's standard is W3C standard and this reinforces that there is, in fact, SOME standard. It is not in existence to lenthen any one company's dominance of any particular industry(s).

As for IE, who would use a faulty browser knowingly? Now sure, before Navigator 5.0, but after, why? If Gecko is nothing else it is faster than IE and supports standards, and fits on a floppy. Once Mozilla is released there will soon be no place for non-standards compliant browsers in the market. IE will support standards or sink. That's like saying color TV just really wasn't going anywhere.

Am I wrong or does this thing simply allow you to downloaded customized UIs? If you don't want to make one for your site, don't. If you can think of a better way to accomplish the purpose, do. I don't see how that requires you to have multiple versions of your Web site.
