"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.

The only problems I have with the new toolbar is that the Netscape icon (Why is it there? This is Mozilla after all!) has to be awkwardly small and weirdly aligned with.. just about everything due to the button text area line thingt.. Also, while looking cool, the letter eats room from the toolbar.. For mail-news, this isn't a problem, but for the browser, it would be impossible. Two different types of toolbars also seem unacceptable for me. Consistency IS important!
