First Glimpse of New Skin for Mozilla!

Saturday October 23rd, 1999

A number of you may have seen newsgroup posts of a new "skin" coming to Mozilla shortly. The design team has been hard at work, and they are planning on landing the new skin early next week. We haven't heard if it will appear in the nightlies at that point, but we'll keep you posted.

Before we get to showing you the new skin, we'll warn you up front that it's not yet in a final state, and any glaring errors are probably being worked on at this very moment.

That said, we have a screenshot of the browser window, and a shot of the address book. Notice the curved ends of the splitter bars and how the address book's toolbar blends into the address list. Also of note is the search button inside the URL bar on the browser screenshot.

There's a lot to see here, and it's sorta hard to come to a conclusion from just a screenshot of in-process work, so I think I'll hold off judgement until I see a final polished version in action...

How about the fact that not everyone who visits MozillaZine is using Mozilla!!! I still use Netscape 4.04 as my main browser and it can't read PNGs very well (crashes, fails to display, etc...), and earlier versions couldn't read them at all. You may wonder why I still use 4.04, well it's simple I'm to lazy to upgrade to 4.5 and Mozilla is still to buggy to use on a regular basis. Face it for now there are still to many lagacy browsers in use for any site to use PNGs on a regualr basis.
