"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...

Perhaps the best match should be the shortest match, if the shortest match is a substring of any match. In this way you will not end up at the Roadmap again, but at <http://www.mozilla.org.> Then TAB could be used to make auto-complete propose longer matches.
