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.

MSNAK I'm currently posting this on M5 and see no reason why you are complaining. Although I would like to thanks you MSNAK for giving us something to think about and I nice argument.

I see where you are coming from.. but don't agree. Sure we need to get to the windows users (I am one). But does that mean a direct copy if E4 with standards? In that case we should drop Gecko and let MS have all the fun.

I really believe the XUL is creative and will be a blessing more that a curse.

It looks different, sure, and it should, this is a new generation browser. Also you state that each UI should be made for it's specific OS? What specific things can you think of that could be intergrated into the UI for Win, BEOS, Linux, etc.?

I'd like too see what you mean.

Anyhow, I'm here enjoying the awesome UI we have now and messing around over at ChromeZone.
