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."

Visually it is fantastic. But one issue I have with all the browser toolbars - this one included - is that they take up so much screen real estate. Unless you're running 1024x768 or better, they can really eat up viewing space. I run NS4.x with the personal toolbar off and the text labels off the buttons just to cope. Has anyone thought of any more efficient UI interface? A standardized skin would be nice for people who break out in hives at a new UI, but I'd like to see a much smaller, more efficient UI available.
