    Hi there! Like many of you I'm a little disappointed in the new icons that came default in iOS 7, especially Safari. A little while ago I came up with this fix - a new icon!

    Here is what the icon will look like:

    To get this, just add this page to your home screen:
    http://bwg.ianthedeveloper.com/safari/

    And now shove the default ugly one into a folder. I hope you guys like this. If you do, spread the word so everybody can get it. If not, then have a nice day.

    Looks a bit like a timepiece.

    Personally, I don't consider that a fix.

    It's kind of a cover. It'll pretty up your home screen a bit.

    It's much more like a clock icon than the default Safari one.:(

    Looks like the icon of a flash game in 1998.

    I like it. Neat idea. I'd like it more with a google redirect personally, but it's an interesting thought. Much better that Apple's.

    I was actually thinking of doing that.

    Sorry, but it looks too much like a clock.

    ...why? All this because you were not happy with the very first glimpse of the icons in the very first beta?

    Thanks for the thought, but, no thanks. I'll wait and see what the following beta's offer me.

    Regarding the design, check Apples icons for spatial placement. Yours is too large on the background. Otherwise, it's not a bad first attempt.

    If you want to make it look less like a clock, maybe add the continent background in there, or just the N S E W compass markings.
