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.

Forget the XUL Tool project that I mentioned earlier. Until XUL is finalized, it would be useless at best... not to mention a complete nightmare by rewriting code over and over again in response to changes in the XUL implementation. Argh!!!

According to Eric Krock: "IF YOU DEVELOP AN APPLICATION NOW USING XUL, ASSUME YOU WILL REWRITE EVERY LINE OF XUL MULTIPLE TIMES BETWEEN NOW AND THE FINAL RELEASE OF NAVIGATOR 5"... That statement was dated May 28th, 1999. Less than two weeks ago.

Quite frankly, I had no idea that XUL was this far from being finalized.

Which leads me to wonder how could anyone be so confident, at the expense of Mozilla's success or for the sake of being right, that XUL is the right thing to do?

Hmmm... I sense dissentation in the ranks.
