Mozilla developer Josh Aas has released a preview build of Firefox that's equipped with native Mac OS X form controls.

The experimental build is currently only available for Intel-based Macs, though a PowerPC version is promised.

The lack of native Aqua-styled widgets for webpage form controls in the OS X edition of Firefox has been a source of complaint for many in the Mac community.

The developer wants to enable native form controls in the trunk builds of Firefox within the next few weeks, meaning that they should make it into Firefox 3.

The experimental build is a preview only and testers have been asked not to file bug reports for any issues they discover.
