Safari, Etched in Glass

I've been thinking a lot about the principles behind iOS 7's new aesthetic. What are we left with after stripping away all the fake textures? Only two legitimate materials, Glass and Light.

So I attempted to translate that idea into an etched glass interpretation of Safari's icon. The effect would require iOS 7 to support transparency in its icons though. I hope they do. I think it would mesh well with the overall look and feel, and I think we'd see some impressive icon designs.
