There are a couple more bugs we'd like to fix for the 0.9 release but want to get as much feedback on the app in general before we go out. Please download this build and test with it and report any show stopping bugs that you find. We are still looking to do a 0.9 final sometime Monday." Builds can be found on the FTP site.

Speaking of the "close tab" button, it doesn't provide enough visual feedback on hover. It's the only aspect of this theme that seems to hinder functionality.

I don't mind the icons so much -- I'd still use Firefox even if the they were rendered in crayon by a pre-schooler -- and I don't think they look too tragic thus far, but I certainly hope they improve the design significantly in small icons mode, because they're not incredibly attractive and take up nearly as much space as the large ones. (At least in Windows 2000 and in "Windows Classic" under XP; I haven't looked at it with Luna yet.)
