I spent a while tinkering with this icon to represent a code fork action.
I started with the left, but it felt too heavy, so I lightened it up. However, the metaphor wasn't quite right. You're not so much splitting something equally as you are creating a new path.
The third icon feels nice, however it's a gradually, meandering transition, whereas when you fork something it's a rather definitive action. That led me to the final icon, on the right.
Would love to hear thoughts on this.
