"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...

yup, for the first time in a few months I decided to use windows just to checkout this build.

I was shocked, the GUI.. not only looking much better than the old Modern, is just as quick as native Win GUIs! Window creation is about a second slower than Netscape, popup menu still takes about 1 second, but the rest is.. amazing.

If someone made a perfect copy of the IE GUI for Mozilla, (yes, i know of the ones at themes.org) then i honestly couldnt tell the difference unless I'd open a new window, or used the popup menu! Okay, sometimes the "File | Edit .. " menus slow down a little, but damn..

*nix guru's, damnwell get your butt overhere and start optimizing the *nix specific code! ;)

exaggurating? maybe.. but i'm impressed, very impressed.. I'm tempted in using Windows for a while.. and that says much.. just for this build

oh, the skin.. ofcourse, yah great work people ;)
