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."

<<and a menu on the Mac platform (albeit without the doodads)>>

You can actually stick most of the doodads into menus for the mac too. You can change the colors of the menus, put in icons, etc. Remember Communicator 4.0 for Mac, where the bookmarks and window menus were just little icons, rather then having "bookmarks" and "window" spelled out? Well, since then, I've upgraded to 4.5/mac of course, but I don't particularly like grey with black type menus on every app, so I changed Communicators menus to Dark purple type on light purple menus. Just use ResEdit and open the MENU resource, or use Kaleidoscope to muck up the whole OS if you'd like.
