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...

Gerbil, I use Windows and although *I* already realize that XUL is cross-platform (woo-hoo!), I think that until some longtime Netscape users are familiar with the technology in the upcoming browser there should be screenshots of what those skins will look like on the various Mozilla platforms. (At least for now.)
True, there won't be much of a difference really but I just think that more "picture proof" would help in clearing the confusion.
