Some major Mozilla UI changes
Lot's of changes are under way for the Mozilla browser
- The "Skyline" project, which is a version of Mozilla is being worked on internally at Netscape, "is a short-term project to build a working prototype of a new web client that provides for the daily needs of novice-intermediate users, is fun to use, and really shines in a broadband environment"
- Project "Phoenix", "...a redesign of the Mozilla browser component, similar to Galeon, K-Meleon and Chimera, but written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform" (via mpt's site)
- The mozilla/browser project, mentioned a while ago on this site has resurfaced on mozdev. There are some screenshots, but the installable XPI is not working, yet.
Ahah.. what about the Mozilla Google bar (http://googlebar.mozdev.org/) and EasySearch (http://easysearch.mozdev.org/index.html)! I guess they're not recent updates but i love them all the same.
It seems that all at once, there's a whole lot of UI forking happening in the Mozilla world. It makes sense that the Gecko engine would be employed in many ways -- after all, that's what it's there for, but it's interesting that so many of these projects are taking off at the same time. And then there are cryptic blog entries like these (http://mozpink.blogspot.com/2002_08_04_mozpink_archive.html#79892040, http://mpt.phrasewise.com/2002/08/06#a315 ) that make me wonder what the heck is going on. Critically, what in the world is AOL doing?
I can't believe this. M/b has been renamed Project Piglet, according to M/b's website.
Ooooh, Phoenix is looking nice with customization etc. You can get it from Asa's Blog. Props to Blake Ross and Dave Hyatt.
