    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!

    I approve. Well done! Maybe it's a tad fuzzy though? Sharpen up the border.

    Wow Loved man. Really. I would change my safari icon for this one. :) But I also agree with @Ben Muschol , sharpen up the border a little bit. But well done man!

    Awesome, using it right now on my Mac! I have to agree with @Ben Muschol as well. The boarder is fuzzy and the shadow seems a bit harsh compared to my other icons.

    Love it except the fuzzy border. Wish it was sharp and simple.

    @Ben Muschol @Lucas Veiga @Simeon | Rimfya| Rimfya Fuzzy border? The object was drawn with a sharp border–here it is without the shadow–so I am not sure what is making it seem fuzzy.

    @Kyle Adams Yeah, the shadow is indeed stronger than most icons. The reason is:
    • I want the icon to look good on both black and white backgrounds.
    • The rim is metal, which means it reflects the background.
    • To look good on a background, the ring needs to reflect that color at the edges, to seem metallic.
    • The shadow is black, and is at the edges of the object

    So the best way to make a metal object look good on both black and white backgrounds is to have a strong black shadow and black reflections at the edges. This does make it look a little too dark, but I'm not sure how to avoid it...

    @Ollin I understand. Take a look at the Mac App store and iTunes icons. They are not metal, howver they are white. I honestly didn't know you were going for metal. I honestly thought it was a white plastic. Either way it looks nice but there isnt really a need for a super strong shadow.

    @Ollin around the edges of the border there's not really a sharp contrast in the color and it kinda fades into the surroundings.

    The shadows on this are sooo sexy!

    Edit:
    For some reason this icon looks smaller compared to the others on my dock.

    Why don't you ever fill the 1024, 256 and 48px sizes for your icons? other than that this is beautiful.

    @Aaron Olive
    1024: I'm on SL and haven't gotten icon composer to export them. My 1024px versions look sort of sloppy, anyway :/
    256: Waste of space, the OS downscales it just as well as I can.
    48px: Not an option in Icon Composer, for me.

    Great !!! Very smooth and suitably subdued.

    @Ollin I think it's just that the drop shadow is so close in colour to the outside colour it looks fuzzy -- especially on the dark background. When I downloaded it the transparent background is much nicer.

    Still rad, tho.

    @Ollin
    Well as @Wil Nichols posted you can use icon slate it's what i use. 256px is not a waste, the new retina MBP uses 256px on the dock instead of 128px. I'm just suggesting that you future proof yourself cause more retina Macs are coming soon.
