Chrome’s New Icon: Simpler, Homelier

By  |  Monday, March 21, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Big news from logoland: Google has simplified Chrome’s icon. It no longer looks quite as much like Simon, but still has the world’s most popular color scheme.

“Redesigning the icon was very much a group effort,” says a post on the Chrome blog, and to my eye, that’s obvious: It looks like it was designed by a committee. Which is true to Google’s personality, I guess–but I prefer the Susan Kare approach.

    Loving the new icon it looks like 666. Whatever that means.

    Yes, I see three 6's as well. Just sayin.

    Not 666, but 999!

    I think the logo is unattractive. It is too sharp edged.

    A cute identifying logo, Today just upgraded t Chrome 10, Firefox 4.0 and I.E. 9.0 They all work well but Chrome with out the IP load on my DSL line is about 2x in speed for most WWW traffic. But if the site was tuned for that browser about the same in speed from the visual looks. The next big lump for WWW browsing is the Cloud Experience. Have herd whispers that Fire Fox may have this in version 5, and what will my 8T RAID drive hooked to the web as part of a Cloud help these software toys.

    people who say it looks like 666 have a messed up view of 6s
