It could use a little tweaking - make the icons less blurry and pale, mostly - but overall the new theme looks ok to me. I won't run it, anyway; I prefer to use a compact theme for more screen space. All the controversy about the visual refresh seems a bit overblown, though.

The other changes in 2.0 I think are great, I've been using the nightly builds as my main browser for months.
