"In this second edition of MozillaQuest the Series, you learn how to peel back the Lizard's skin. Then you start hacking the Mozilla GUI (graphical user interface) to learn how to build your own customized, Mozilla-based, browser suite. Or if you like, simply create your own personal Mozilla or Netscape browser skin or theme."

"Today you will add to the basic feel you got in Part I for things you can do with Mozilla customizing and skinning. No heavy-duty skin surgery today -- just a few dabs of superficial cosmetic touch-up. But even so, just working at this very superficial level you will learn how to brand your own customized browser or browser skin by putting your name and logo on what then becomes "your" Web browser."

"In part, branding puts your company, organization, or personal logo on the browser navigation bar and your personal, company, or organization name on the title bar. It's free advertising. But it also is somewhat like an old-fashioned guild mark or hallmark that says you made (or at least modified) the item and you are proud of your work."
