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.

"I don't mind waiting for a program to start up... and neither do most people..."

I'm afraid that's not true.

"But after it is released WHAM everyone will jump on the band wagon"

In America, we call this 'wishful thinking'.

"As far as UI speed goes this at worst will be a minor issue in the first release"

On the contrary, it *will* be the deciding factor.

"my guess is because mozilla is open source more developers will consider this unacceptable and move to correct it"

Hopefully, they will come to this realization *before* the final release.

"Does javascript image mouseovers prevent people from using a web site? This will be trivial to most users"

As web content? No. As the application's chrome? You bet ya. The difference will be far from trivial.

"no one likes the 'windows explorer' in win98..."

No argument there... ever wonder why?
