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.

Here's a little comparison for those running apprunner. It's a little scheme that 'attempts' to mimic the Netscape UI.
Download this little scheme here:
and place that file in your bin\chrome directory. Be sure to back up the original registry.rdf file to save your current scheme. Then run apprunner.
Compare the new UI 'look & feel' to the default UI of Netscape Communicator...
Unless you're a Linux user, you will notice quite a difference. I say this because the X-Window system in Linux is cheesy to begin with and the default Netscape UI looks/behaves like hell anyways.
I'm running it now from a PII-400 and can only imagine what it would be like on a P200.
Excuse the slang, but XUL just ain't what it's hyped up to be.
