"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...

I completely agree. I haven't downloaded the build or anything, but I loved the way that the old autocomplete filled in the best match for you. The only disadvantage I can see with this method is that if you've been to <> (and no other pages at, and then later type <> and press Enter, you'll end up looking at the Roadmap again.

So, we should do whatever we do when there's a disagreement... make it a pref! I suggest a new checkbox in the Smart Browsing prefs panel:

---Location Bar Autocomplete--- Automatically completes text typed into the Location bar.

[X] Enable Location bar autocomplete [X] Go to best match when Enter is pressed
