"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 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...

Yes, simplying the UI in an intuitive fashion is a very a good thing. However, you still need a certain number of features, also added in a simplistic and intuitive way. Hewitt is already taking suggestions to improve autocomplete to make it more useful and make it cleaner looking. And autocomplete isn't a useless feature. I admit that I had a hard time accept it when it first came about in Netscape 4, however I've come to rely on it, and countless other people have come to rely on it.

After you got the UI up and running, why not tweak a variation of it for appearance? There is not one size fits all, but many people, including myself, really like new Modern skin. There is still Classic, which is a great skin also.

But, what does nationalism have to do with anything?
