    I haven't spent more than a second staring at that icon or having an opinion about it.

    Icons change, trademarks can change.

    Because it's trademarked doesn't mean it has to stay that way now. See the calculator icon. Poor thing keeps changing every few years.

    If these apparently leaked screenshots of iOS 8 are anything to go by, it looks as if the Safari icon will be tweaked.

    Yeah, I would do the same to Safari's icon.

    But it doesn't really bothers me.

    They are fake. The font is wrong. The iBooks label is off.

    I don't see anything wrong with the icon for safari.

    That's because there isn't anything wrong with it.

    It doesn't mean much. They've been trademarking some of the iOS 6 icons right before iOS 7 came out.

    I actually like the safari icon. And all the mockups I've seen make it worse.

    Only problem I have with it is the white space around the compass. It looks bad when it is in the dock.

    I don't understand why people whine about the icons. What matters is whether they're gonna improve the browser itself or not, not its icon.

    I care more about how an app works than the icon that I look at for a split second.

    I've never thought the icon looks out of place.

    to me, the browser is perfect as it is so now they should focus on the icon haha

    Everybody acts like I really care that much about the icon haha. I posted this for the people who constantly complain about it.

    Yes, I think it is ugly and can be improved, but it's not a deal breaker for me.

    Yeah exactly, it's not a deal breaker but it could definitely be improved!

    Personally I don't mind the safari icon, I think it's decent, but the "leaked" one sure looks better.
