"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...


#139 But throbbers fit smaller screens

The only downside I can see to this is that the envelope image and the others are pretty big. When you resize the browser window smaller, the throbber stays on the right edge of the window. The throbber needs to be small in order to maximize the amount of toolbar buttons that you see on a small window. Perhaps we can come up with some other technique to replace the throbber... I dunno, maybe the image can become background of the toolbar if there's not room for it.

Don't get me wrong: I love the idea of having a slick animated image instead of a buttonish throbber, especially if the image will always be present.
