The ugly Safari icon in iOS 7 (only icon that still looks off for me) may not be changing anytime soon. A patent was filed on April 30 for the Safari, Music, iTunes, and Voice Memos icons.

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.

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.

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.
