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.

Believe me, after reading your last post, I don't think I'll ever take anything you say seriously, again.

What concernes me is how many others are there like you who's involvement with Mozilla is nothing but a mask for a hidden agenda.

The difference between you and I is that if I make a mistake... I will come clean on it and be a man about it. If I am proven wrong about something... I *will* admit it.

You, on the other hand, like instigating and provoking... these are the things that you feed on. Once this thread was becoming 'intelligent', you all but disappeared... and then suddenly reapper out of the blue when a little turmoil strikes.

Quite frankly, you and anyone else like you, should be ashamed of yourselves. It is people just like you that give Netscape/Mozilla such a tacky image.

I happen to have a strong interest in seeing Mozilla succeeed. If I see something going wrong, I will call it, regardless of the popular 'consensus'.

I have learned, all too quickly, that there are a great many 'goof offs' here who's interest in Mozilla is nothing more than a way for them to vent their blind hatred.

With the exception of probably 5 or 6 people that I have seen post here... all, are nothing short of a discredit to Mozilla... who's desire to be 'right', or rather, 'not be proven wrong' ranks far above any interest in helping Mozilla succeed.

I had heard negative things left and right about MozillaZine for quite sometime now... and decided to give it a fair shot and see for myself.

Unfortunatley, it has been nothing less than a disappointment and nothing less than an uphill battle to try and save Mozilla from making a critical mistake.

So be it. But when I start getting the feeling that I'm working harder than the one I'm trying to help... that's when I sense that there is something seriously wrong.

Best of luck.
