    Personally I think that they just uglify the dock, so I changed them to the older style ones. It looks odd having five square icons next to each other while the rest of the icons are normal.

    What are your thoughts on CS4's icon set?

    Sharp and minimalistic with enough information to get their point across.

    They're hard to assimilate into the Dock, I'll give you that.

    I don't mind them. I sort of like the periodic table appearance to them.

    When cs3 came out I even made myself an avatar based some of the icons, and a few of my own. :D

    I don't mind them, as long as they keep away from my dock.

    I like them - the colours make them easy to recognise.

    But yeah - they don't fit in with the other icons...

    Not a fan - they look very 90s but I guess for some people that's a good thing!! :confused:

    Every time I look at them I am reminded of the periodic table. ...I hated chemistry...

    I kinda like these ones (I found them online). I'd use them if they didn't have that "CS5" text, and if it were more than just the three.

    I though I was the only one who thought they look out of place on the dock. sometimes I put them on there to feel more 'pro', but in the end, I end up removing them because they don't fit in.

    I don't call them icons; that's how much I dislike them.

    Those CS3 ones with the white letters work better than the new CS4 with black letters I think.

    The CS1 & 2 feather flower and butterfly icons were much nicer though.

    No, I made it, hence the "Ha Ha" after it. ;)
