"Mozilla will be getting a new look very soon. The Modern theme has been redesigned to be a little easier on the eyes. The new look includes a lighter shade of blue, colored toolbar button icons, and lots of other little touches. Bear with me as I land this sometime in the next week or so, as there will surely be bugs. The design is still evolving and there are likely to be frequent changes (for example, dialog buttons will not be black for long after landing)."

Joe also sent us a screenshot for you to check out, stay tuned for more info on this landing.

A couple of comments:

1) The toolbars for mail and the browser don't share the same design 2) The buttons on the browser toolbar have a heavy outline.. could be a little lighter (as in.. not heavy) 3) the component icons (bottom bar) are cool but the wheel for the browser is a little heavier than the rest and feels a little bit out of place 4) the dark grey-brown widgets ("go", "search", "all engines" etc.) could get some other color.. it's not totally bad but that color is sub-optimal 5) the lock icon should be moved to the left on the toolbar. leaving the empty corner there for the mac resize widget makes no sense since 95% of all computers will just have an empty corner there. 6)
