"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...

unfortunatly I'm going to have to say I'm against the new autocomplete feature - I like the old method much better. I also don't like the new modern skin much better than the old. I think I'm going to end up sticking to classic since I just can't get to liking the new modern skins (well its better than the first one! LOL). Not to be negative, but I think that everything is getting to "cartoony". Heck, I though N4 looked too cartoony for me compaired to N3. Is anyone working on alternative skins that can be imported? I do like the gradiant on the URL bar though. Definatly go with that idea!

I must say Moz is pretty smokin nowdays. I remember when Moz finally got far enough to "use"... you click and wait 2 seconds for anything to respond. Now it's just about as responsive (well in many aspects anyway) to the native stuff on windows. "Good job" to anyone that's worked on it.

gah! When did the backspace button start making you go to the previous page instead of "page up" like it used to? Dammit!
