    Lion uses iOS style badges on apps Dock icons.

    This looks quite nice with a large dock size.

    But with a small size, it looks ugly :-(

    And sometimes you can't recognize clearly these new badges.
    Especially the numbers inside the badges.

    Is there a way to use the old red badges from Snow leopard?

    Thanks a lot.

    It looks the same to me, no matter the size. ;)

    I'm sure there is no way to change it.

    Same, same, but different ;)

    Pity... i don't like them on os x :-( on iOS it is quite ok.

    The old badge style was much better to recognize.

    Now you have a badly scaled undefined badge with a white edge.

    Agreed! The new icon is horrible in a small dock. Can't read it at all.

    Agreed, no idea how to change it back though.

    So i'm not alone and I don't flatter myself that they are hard to read ;)

    I'm sure there will be a hack ;-) Maybe at macthemes.net.

    We have to wait.

    I truly hope we can change this at some point soon, because they're not readable anymore like this.. and I don't even have my dock icons set to a very small size (just smaller than normal). Makes them useless and annoying.
