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.

Jake,

In reference to your first question, Bruce pretty much hit the mark on that one. Although, I would add to that: If Mozilla detected poor acceptance of the XP UI during the beta phase, I'd bet money that they would still be able to deliver native implementations right on schedule, with no delays in release dates. Keep in mind, too, that Moz developers may not even have to redo the UI of the Unix version of Mozilla. You'll see my point on that later.

With that said, I wouldn't expect much in the way of protest during the beta phase. The majority of beta users, I believe, will still be of the 'techie' mindset and I don't forsee this group as having a problem with an XP UI at all. In fact, I don't see the entire Unix market as having any problems with an XP UI, either. Unix users are typically, in and of themselves, technically minded. If there are problems with an XP UI, I see it coming from end-users of the Windows and, more than likely, Macintosh markets. Unfortunately, getting a good idea of acceptance from the 'end-users' of Windows and Mac markets isn't likely to occur until well after the final release of Mozilla.

As for your second question, your guess is as good as, or probably better, than mine.

mozineAdmin,

If you're grabbing any of this I'd like to apologize to you as well for calling this forum 'hip-hip-hooray'. I noticed, upon a second glance, that didn't sound as I had intended.
