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.

So, everyone's given their eloquent and well thought out opinions on this issue. So what? What's the use? No one is going to give serious consideration to claims of XUL's failure based on conjecture.

I'd love to know how you think we can make customizing UIs easier for the average joe windows user. That's why I wrote the xultool in the first place. I'd love to hear how you think we can make xul better, not why it's the wrong thing. It's way to late for that, honestly. Please give specifics, not opinions and rants - unless you just want this to degenerate into a slashdotcommentflamefest and scare everyone away. What can we do to make it *better*?
