Figures 2a and 2b are downsized shots of the Mozilla 0.7 and Netscape 6.0 browser Classic skins. As with the Modern skins, there is not much noticeable difference here either. The Classic skin is the default skin for Mozilla 0.7.

Officially there is no Mozilla 0.7 browser-suite developer release. At publication time, the new Mozilla developer release numbering system skips from the current Mozilla 0.6 to Mozilla 0.8, which is expected to be released before next year.

However, for the reasons explained later, we use the 17 November 2000 Mozilla Mtrunk builds for this article. So, we have taken the liberty of calling the 17 November Mtrunk builds Mozilla 0.7 since there will be no official Mozilla 0.7 release.

Looking more closely at the full-scale screen shots of the Mozilla and Netscape Modern skins the most noticeable differences are in the branding. In part, the branding puts your company, organization, or personal logo on the browser navigation bar and your personal, company, or organization name on the title bar.
