"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 netscape icon is there because the person developing the theme which will be contributed to Mozilla as an alternate skin happens to be employed by netscape and works on netscape commercail daily builds and not mozilla daily builds.

If you can create a better alternate theme for Mozilla feel free to do so. When it\'s as far along as the one Joe is working on post some screenshots or make a test XPI available to the Mozilla community and ask mozilla.org if you can check it in.

If this is really \"unacceptable\" for you then don\'t use it. Remember, it is an _alternate_ theme. Mozilla builds default to Classic.
