"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.

Yes, grey would rule.. The thing is that these Pez-dispenser designs look good only on some desktops that happen to have colors that match. Just check the window border colors here.. 204, 207, 212.. It's a grey with almost the exactly same brightness as the menus in the new design. Sure, on that system, that probably looks great. On a system with a sand colored scheme, it might look like crap. I vote for having relatively neutral default skins. And I vote for getting that damn empty corner next to the lock-icon on the status bar removed!! (alternatively, moving the lock icon to the left) :)
