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.

You are replying to this message

"are you saying that unix users tolerate slow performance and that windows users are used to the speedzone?"

I'm saying that Unix users are accustomed to a certain type of environment and that Windows users are accustomed to a certain type of environment. The point being that these two environments are not equal. And since you brought it up, XP environments are far more common in a Unix setting than a Windows setting. I don't make the rules... I just state the case.

"Anyway we have XUL newsgroups and there's no point to continue this "thread" here"

Well, I shall politely bow out. I did, by the way, head over to the XUL newsgroup to make another last ditch attempt to persuade Mozilla to take the native approach with Win32. The newsgroup was more or less dead, at the time, except for a brief introduction to XUL... and a stern warning/disclaimer not to use it unless you wanted to make multiple changes to your XUL code prior to the final implementation.

By the way, I was looking forward to your input on that button I sent ya!
