"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.

I love everything about mail (provided you can turn the text labels off - and that the envelope shrinks correspondingly when you do) and hate (almost) everything about the browser. The circles are ugly and way too pronounced, the grey "search" and "go" buttons don't fit in with the rest of the theme, the sidebar panels are ugly compared to their current state, etc. etc.

If you were to make the browser use the same icon style as mail (get rid of the circles, shrink the icons down, put in optional text labels, etc) I'd be in heaven!

Oh yeah, and I'm in favor of a grey version, too :)

Stuart.
