"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 believe that the plan is to replace Modern 2 with Modern 3 in both Mozilla and Netscape's next release. I don't think that we want to maintain 3 themes in Mozilla and I'm not positive but I suspect that Netscape doesn't want to maintain two versions of New Modern (they're not maintaining 'Blue', the first modern).\
