Skin for LOTR Browser Released
NeoPlanet has released an update for
the official LOTR browser, which includes a new skin: Moria. Unfortunately, the new update
removes lots of links from the toolbar that were there previously, so you may not want to
run the update. Why they would something like that is beyond me.
The new skin looks very nice. The
menu bar to the right is made up of a single Moria-ish piller. What I thought was most
interesting is that when the browser is actively bringing up a new page, there is an
animated Balrog shadow in the upper-right hand corner of the screen. Very cool.
The skin has an overall darkish look
and feel to it. Basically, it's made up of orange images over a black background. Matches
this site quite nicely!
What I'd like to see now is a Gondor
or Rohan skin, perhaps with some rolling hills and some white towers, walls, and
battlements. Stop by NeoPlanet and let them know
that we want more new skins to enjoy. Perhaps they'll take our advice and appease the
hungry Tolkien fans dying for more material.
The new update and Moria skin can be
downloaded from NeoPlanet by clicking
here. You can download the browser itself here.
