"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.

It's purple all right. Not at all brighter blue. Far too much red in it. Purple is the one color i never could stand, so the new modern is a skin i won't be using. PLEASE keep the "old" newmod skin as an alternative? I much prefer the simpler buttons in that one, as well as the tabs in sidebar. The new tabs are too "cartoonish" and look blubby or "heavyer" compared to the more streamlined and discret tabs in the current newmod theme.

As for the new icons: Too much color and black outlines makes them look more chaotic than the old and cleaner look.
