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.

Now I think the this forum has taken a more productive tone.

Instead of flames and frustration, there is now a sharing of many different perspectives, ideas, knowledge and experience meeting together, taking action in a productive way to improve and optimize acknowledged possible weaknesses and pitfalls for a very important piece of software that I think everyone here really wants to see succeed.

This seems to me to be a classic example of open source 101 in action.

You don't get good solid stable and exceptional software by everyone agreeing, you get it by disagreeing and then finding some real solutions.

I better stop before I get all teary eyed and stuff.
