Is this new blobby icon the new icon for all releases? (Aside from being black in the example below because it's the snapshot version.)
Between the circle and the rounded square, it's getting kind of busy, distracting from the elegantly simple "v" design. And the ultra-heavy rounding keeps making me think "VivaldiTube"; a resemblance that I imagine would be even more apparent in the red (final release) version of the icon.
Edit: Hmm... is the circle trying to evoke a certain "O"?
@Isildur Yes it is.
Did you miss the announcement in the earlier snapshot?
@Isildur I believe the current thought is rounded edges are friendlier than 90 degree corners thus the lack of angles.
I sometimes override dock icons using this method, but that tends to get reset on update.
I don't think there's much point in fighting it. I wasn't very appreciative of it in the beginning either, but have started embracing it. Takes time
