Mac OS X Leopard Mail and RSS
- I'm a little disappointed that Apple's new
version of Mail uses the old-style icon
rather than the beautiful feed icons by Matt Brett.
The arguments for the new icon are a-plenty:
- IE7 and Firefox both use this new icon already
- Using "RSS" confuses the question of whether Atom, OPML, or future standards will be supported.
- Using letters in an icon is usually a Bad Thing, Apple should know this more than anyone else.
- The old icon looks ugly.
It's freely available in vector format, absolutely no design time required.
No one will stop them from making it blue instead of orange.
