"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...

I half agree, the autofill of the text is missing (hope this is just a bug, since the new autocomplete isn't even finished yet), but I still find it much more useful now than ever. The old old autocomplete in IE was almost useless to me because it provided only one choice at a time, and 99% of the time it wasn't the URL I wanted and I would have to type in most of the URL before it gives me the URL that I wants, which made it almost pointless. With the listing of the URLs, I get a choice after typing 2 or 3 letters of the URL, which is usually within the first few things listed and all I have to do is press down with the arrow key.
