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 hit it pretty close to the mark on that one, plus or minus a few degrees.
To Kovu: I appreciate, and relate, to your intense dislike of Microsoft, however, I wouldn't be placing any bets that Windows is going to be displaced any time soon. And I sure as hell would not count on that as part of any 'marketing strategy'.
Really, though, this is off topic to what I'm talking about. Same goes for the rendering engine of Mozilla, which I think is top notch and coming along quite nicely.
