Further Random Evening Thoughts
"The Modern with the warrior, the mean with the stride, the Tom with the sawyer, And the mean, mean, mean, mean pride."
Ecto, OmniWeb, Colloquy, Firefox, NetNewsWire. There are just far too many icons on my dock based on globe imagery. I can't find any links, but I swear someone made just this observation not too long ago.
I mean, come on, I understand that the internet is world wide and has global reach and all that--but can I get a little more variation in icon design here? :) At least Safari's compass gives a nod back to the "Navigator" theme from ye olden days of Netscape.
Can I get a different overall shape at least? A triangle or trapezoid, maybe? These all tend to smudge into vague circles at low magnification, or in the pre-coffee morning hours. I'd be fine if NNW dropped the globe and stuck with the satellite. Colloquy might be cool just as a funky megaphone. And, maybe ecto could play up that pen theme.
Ah well--I wouldn't be grousing if I didn't rely on these apps daily.
