    A quickie, I really don't like the plastic, cheap/kitschy feel of the default Safari icon, so I tried for something more elegant. Suggestions, tips, especially regarding the lighting/reflections would be appreciated. Fullview at http://cl.ly/030e283Z2A0G240z1J2i, let me know what you think!

    Edit: Didn't mean to insult the default Safari icon or the great designers at Apple. It is my personal opinion that the original Safari icon, at least at 512x [http://cl.ly/93b2] looks kinda dated :-/

    This feels more "plastic, cheap/kitschy" than the default Safari icon IMO.

    @Daniel: Oh dear. Well, I hope you like that style, then :-)

    I don't really think that the original one looks plastic/cheap/kitschy. But that doesn't prevent me from loving this icon. It really has an elegant look and by all means, go forward and release it.

    I like the center. Nice and sharp. But the contrast is kinda low with the shadows/reflections on the outer ring. Looks blurry to me.

    An overhaul of the minimal Safari icon I made a year ago. Lots of focus on the metal shading and the overall vibrance, this time. Very satisfying to see how I have improved :)

    Here's a download, for those who want it!

    Hi @Ollin! Is there any way for me to get an .icns of this version. I´ve been using that one for years and is definitely my favourite Safari of all time. You made it sit really good on my Dock:)

    Haha @Ollin. We´ve discussed this before:) Generally I have a really matte dock (Mostly Lanham´s Somatic). I therefore think your "ugly" Safari fits better in than the newer, glossy and more detailed one. Thanks a lot for the icon. Once again, my Mac shines:)

    @Thuy Gia Nguyen Oh yeah, you mentioned. I remember now, it fits in well :)

    My dock is all photorealistic and whatnot so anything cartoony looks silly.
