"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.


#81 My Sidebar tabs

First thing that struck me was how much it made Mozilla look like a Palm m50x ;)

Anyhow, for the most part I like the new look. However, the thing I dislike about it the most are the new tabs in My Sidebar. They look cartoony and childish. The tabs from the current Modern are polished and slick. I much prefer the straighter edges on the current Modern, and the shadow effect is just awesome.

This is one item that should be left alone, IMHO.
