    The new logos are much, much uglier than the original. Tasteless and surely some kind of sick joke. No? Gosh d*rnit, Google.

    There are better looking, vector-designed logos of Chrome, but these new ones are in fact very ugly.

    Yes the old ones look better because they have the 3D eye-candy going for them, but they probably broke many of the rules in regard to Logo design.

    The newer ones in comparison are blah, but they make for a cleaner (sure boring) logo and still are recognizable (just not in black and white) from the originals. But isn't google about clean and simple when it comes to their designs?

    As I said, simply logos aren't bad. Just this one in particular is terrible.

    The old logo is a lot better. The new one sucks.
     
  9. Like most of you, I prefer the old one. I am a current Graphic Communications student and although the new logo presents more of that simple, flat look, what I love about the old one is that they broke away from that simple flat look that everyone uses.

    TLDR: Old version is unique, defining and illustrative. New version is boring, flat and looks like a cheap knockoff.

    The old logo DEFINITELY looks better but to be honest the new one fits in PERFECTLY with the browser. It's just simple and clean.

    hold on. i just noticed that in first pic, the new logo seems trash with the color fade effect. looks much better on the about google chrome image.

    I prefer the old logo, in despite of the minimal style of chrome, but its not ugly at all

    It's like they forgot what they named their product.

    You are missing out on the motive behind this. This new 2D logo can be put anywhere for advertisement purposes. Look at Android's! You can print that on a rats *** and it would still be recognisable. :)

    I did like the old one better though...

    A step back, older version is better.

    The old one looked like a tit.
     
  23. What an "improvement"! (note the sarcasm...)

    This is what happens when the Google graphics designers get a pay cut.
     
  24. Another Vote for the old one!
     
  25. NOOOOO. the old logo is farrrrr better. all they should do is remove the square panels on the bottom left and it will be fine
