Update on Animation Contest
Thursday July 15th, 1999
I have a brief update regarding the animation contest. First the prizes have been awarded. Thanks to mozilla.org for the generous donations, and the work of Mitchell Baker.
We are working on getting the gallery up, and hope to have a means of adding the throbbers to your own Mozilla sometime soon. We also hope to get the new animation into the nightly builds before M9.
(Updated): Also, Richard Hess of the BeZilla team has created two animation.dat files for Unix users of Communicator. Here's a screenshot of it in place in the browser. One contains a 32x32 and a 28x28 image, and the other a 32x32 and a 16x16 image. Each has been tested on Irix systems, but should work on other Unix systems as well. They can be found in this directory at Richard's website.

You can do just that. Download one of the nightly builds (a milestone releases if you're looking for something more stable.) Then save the new throbber to the /bin/res/throbber/ directrory. Save it as anim.gif (the name of the throbber that comes with mozill.) now launch apprunner.exe and you've got the new throbber.
