"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...

Well, I\\\\\\\'m sure there are political reasons for having the browser buttons they way they are but lets face, mail-news and composer look much better than the browser - the images on the browser toolbar have defects in the shape (aren\\\\\\\'t they usually round?) and should really be a consistant look which ties in with mail-news (which is the best example of all the apps).

Obvously the hard part is creativity -coming up with appropriate icons in the given style. but I think it will be worth it (the politicians that say the browser buttons should look the way they do will follow if you get it right). If I\\\\\\\'m wrong and there is no reason for keeping the browser buttons in the style they have then get it sorted - what are you thinking?? This stuff is important to the success of the whole mozilla project because it affects user acceptance.

Just my two pence.
