"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...

The reaction to the links on the Taskbar surprised me a bit. Netscape Navigator 1.x, 2.x and 3.x had a toolbar full of links to their site (called the Directory Buttons) where the Personal Toolbar is now. They also had a Directory menu full of similar stuff. However, Netscape wasn't a portal then (no-one had even coined the phrase), so most of the buttons were more directly related to the browser (though there were some like What's New and What's Cool). So maybe the point's more valid now they're just trying to get us to book flights or read showbiz news.
