"For those of you who are interested in helping us test new features (or just like to get a sneak preview of things to come) there is an experimental Windows build with the new autocomplete widget and the new modern theme available at ftp.mozilla.org. Please post theme feedback and autcomplete issues here until it is checked into the trunk."

Joe Hewitt wants to also let folks know that the new skin is only half way done, and to be gentle on him...

I about had heart tremors over how gorgeous the new mail chrome and the fake navigator chrome look together, but I think Ben_Gooder was right: the buttons have to start on the left edge of the screen.

I think replacing the button throbber with a gently animated wheel or envelope (or pen-on-paper as the case may be) would be.... just awesome. please do this. yes! yes! yes! after a year of lurking on these forums and testing builds, this is the one idea I was excited enough about to make an account and give my support.

As far as the animation, it needed be anything difficult or obnixous. It could be as simple as some sparkles passing across or a little pulsating. Or even shooting stars reminiscent of previous Netscapes.
