Modern has a skin with these features that fit design "trends"... -anti-aliased images -and therefore, not so many hard lines (smaller images still have some, but that's unavoidable with pretty much any icons) -for some images a slightly off-center perspective that makes them appear more 3-D -hover states that usually consist of more color saturation, not just the addition of color

Essentially, Modern look fits in well with the newest OS look.

As to Classic being default (is it? I only use Firebird and I can't check on the computer I'm using now, but I thought Modern was default), I'd have to argue with that choice as well. I've actually never liked the old-style Netscape look, though - the purples and greens (? going off memory) that permeated the Classic interface were never something that looked even remotely good to me. (However, as I now use Firebird I don't have the interest to actually try to get any changes to any default theme, though.)
