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."

No the point isn't to copy MS menu bars. This way the menu bars are consistent with the rest of the UI. On the other hand if menu bars are not acceptable then the toolbars should use system colors. Otherwise it won't look good at all (NS 4.x looks good with default colors but try changing the menu colors in control panel) Anyway, file bugs and maybe we'll see some real UI changes through XUL instead of just skins
