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.

To Jason,

Re: Bruce/MSNAK's "tone". It's more a debating tactic than a tone...

Circular arguments...

Pokes at an other person's knowledge/ability/status to discredit their position...

quickly retracted unfounded (or "misread") retorts.

even the simpathetic "I can see you side too, but/I want this to succeed as much as you, but" tone he occasionally takes is designed to throw us off guard.

They're all tools used to win debates, regardless of the merit of their argument.

Now, I'm not dismissing you as "meritless" Bruce, just pointing out that, given enough skill, a debater can win an argument, whether they think its right or not.

One thing he hasn't used much, is semantics. The "well you may have meant that, but what YOU SAID IS .." kinda stuff. (had an ex-girlfriend that could use that like a scalpel... I think she's a lawyer now)

The interesting thing is this offer to pay for a Booth at a flea market... both a "up the Ante" tactic (suddenly he's got $300 bucks riding on this) and a nice little diversion to boot (we'd have to agree on the standards of the comparison, and whether a walk by flea market booth is the best place to do the "test"... lot's of off topic stuff).

I think he's long since stopped trying to prove a point. Now he's trying to "win" this debate is all.

that's my 2 cents worth, at any rate. I am after all just Some Smart Ass ;)
