Third-party Work on New Menubar for Mozilla

Thursday June 17th, 1999

Arielb has an interesting piece of news:

"Ben Goodger is working an interesting theme for mozilla with a nice preliminary shot here.

Notice that the menu bar now has a grippy just like the other toolbars. Unfortunately submenus don't work yet so bug #8397 was filed. But I think this is a superior approach for handling menus. Following up on that is this news[group] article. You can now play around with the chrome and note some of the issues involved."

The mac would have it's own XUL file. Every other OS that I'm aware of (Windows, OS/2, Unix, BeOS) will have the menu toolbar.

Behr raises a good question which is even more relevant when you consider using mozilla on tiny handhelds. On the other hand, UI's that rely on menus are too _small_ for mozilla on a TV. So now we begin to appreciate the idea of configurable UI's.

Anyway if menu toolbars don't work then I'd rather use system colors instead of the purple for the other toolbars
