I made myself a new Chrome icon. I got tired of looking at the default one and decided to use it as practice. I attached the .icns file, so feel free to use it in your dock.
No 3D by the way, all Photoshop.

Great job on this!
Looks awesome man. It feels sort of robotic to me. Nice take on the logo.
NICE. This looks like a sentient game of Simon where, if you lose, it begins counting down some kind of irrevocable self-destruct sequence.
@Joe, Thats exactly what I was going for. Verbatim. I even have it written on a napkin if you want me to show you.
Also, If you download it and install it and it looks desaturated, let me know. Currently working on a fix.
Nice. It didn't work when I tried to make it my icon, but now I have a new chrome icon that looks like a file :)
You amaze me Matt. Dang. How long did this one take?
@charlesriccardi, About three evenings. Maybe 6-7 hours in all. I'm still slow at this, lots of trial and error. But I'm also taking a lot of time to try to do everything in vector shapes.
@DOSBeats What method are you using to replace the icon? The absolute sure-fire method is CandyBar. Or you can try this article. Or find and replace the app.icns Chrome icon file using the finder. If you need more info on that last method, let me know.
Matt, Awesome work man! Let me know if you'd like to do a blog post about your process, I'd love to know the techniques you used.
@matt even if I view the Get Info on the icon itself there is a broken icon size. I love the icon though.
Amazing replacement icon!
