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.

Anthony, you raise some interesting points with MS looking into using XML as an interface and being rejected... interesting enough to make me concerned. Especially when you take into consideration that MS is a VERY large company who would do anything to put NS under. Unfortunatly, the only thing we (at least me, being a non programer) is wait and hope.

Just out of curiosity, let's say that XUL does flop in the main reslease (or even the Beta), how long would it take to scrap it and start making native UI's for all the OS's it runs on?

In a question completely unrealated, does/will Mozilla have support for multiple profiles based on the user logged in (for systems such as Linux or WinNT [or oven Win9x that has multiple user profiles]) so that settings and mail is protected by the OS password?
