"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.

100, 101, 106 should be grey and it looks like grey. So I think it IS grey. :) In other words, a light black. It could be a little bit blueish (and yes, I see some minor influence of blue) cause of the slightly larger value vor "blue". But if you really see this as brown, you should check your monitor settings. :) And as the article said: "dialog buttons will not be black for long after landing"

Concerning the browser wheel, I think it's ok. The browser is definetly the major applications, so why should this item look different? I think this new theme is great. But I'm still waiting for a new official Mozilla theme that looks a bit more like classic, but not THAT classic. I want something with clean and nice widgets with sharp edges, not round ones. :) But NOT exactly this old and boring Netscape look. I'm sick of it.
