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.

Waste of Time - come back when you've got some experience in the computer industry. Nobody who competes with Microsoft on Windows survives. All a Win32-specific UI does is support Mozilla's biggest competitor.

Besides, it's stupid to say that the majority of the users on the web are Windows users as if it will always stay that way. Microsoft's got more than a fair bit of competition, particularly for the more technically aware markets. A fair percentage of windows users either aren't aware of or allowed to use other operating systems. Most the people who can't or won't upgrade their browsers also fit into this category. More literate groups tend to have a higher percentage of people using alternate platforms. There's also this fruit company that's been selling a couple computers a month that don't run Windows. Is your laziness worth ignoring the growing Mac market too?
