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."

I really like this approach. This way we can bring in flexiblity that would not have by just employing the OS based menu bars. Eventually this is a good jump off point for making further more daring menu designs down the road, such as transparency, letting users place the menu else where etc. If this was as fast and stable as a standard menu, I think you're really on to something.
