"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...

You are replying to this message

very.. nice.

Without the bookmarkbar it looks much better, so it should differate itself in color from the toolbar, a nice, much darker blue perhaps?

with the more advanced looking icons the reload and stop buttons obviously need to be chaned to something more appropriate but i'm sure someone is working on that for Modern3.

the icon for a bookmark really needs to change, same with the bookmark folders. I believe some time ago there was a nightly with golden/orange bookmark folder icons, they looked much better...

the throbber really needs to be bigger to still fit in with the toolbar.

I've always liked the little bumps on the ...? (the little things that toggles the toolbar, menubar, and bookmark bar), the ones used now on Modern2 and presumably Modern3 look too plain and slick.

mm, after all this praising Mozilla I'm happy to get a chance to whine again ;)
