"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 believe Mosaic had a throbber on the left-hand side that also acted as a Stop button. It was a stylised 'S' (as in NCSA). Netscape has always had throbbers on the right-hand side, starting initially with one based around an 'M' (it was called Mosaic Communications then) in a circle with coloured blocks (they rotated during data transfer). By the time of the first 1.0 release, legal reasons meant that it was now a rather dull blue 'N' that raised to become embossed and then sunk back into the screen. The shooting stars throbber debuted in 1.1. It was restyled for 4.0 (the animation became faster and the throbber reduced in size), but I always preferred the previous version. I love Netscape 6's throbber though. Very cool.
