  1. Mozilla has rolled out Firefox 23, the foundation's latest beta release for PC, Mac and Android platforms. Unlike most betas though, this latest release is accompanied by yet a more emblematic milestone: a newly design logo. The new artwork is...

    The logo change is so subtle, why bother?
     
  3. "which will speed up H.264 encoding in Windows Vista/7/8"

    Surely you mean DEcoding, otherwise we are getting a browser that can encode video, now that's a novelty feature.

    Took me a moment to even notice. As for the rest might try it but probably will just stick with chrome but when knows I could go back.

    lol - Please forgive me for laughing.

    Your point only proves, it doesn't really matter how refined they make the icon.

    I hope somebody writes an extension to prevent Firefox from doing this.

    Call it, "Hermit Fox"! Or maybe, "Get out of my Face Fox"! Wait, I've got it, "Do you really need to put your Nose there Fox?"

    I like the extension name "Hermit Fox" myself. :)

    It took me a while to see the differences. But seriously, why bother with these changes treeski said. At least make the logo flat... if anything.

    This really needs some type of explanation. One of the many things that gamers like to run on about is 3D rendering.

    Why on earth would you like to make the FF logo flat?

    As a prime example against this would be, what do you get when you take all the depth and perspective out of the Windows GUI?

    Well? You get .........(wait for it).........."Metro"!

    (Oh glorious & joyous day, the rapture that is Metro, I am complete, Metro completes me, Steve Ballmer completes me).

    (I could go on! But should I go on? Let me see a show of hands).

    Wow!! What an eye catching logo. It looks... well... identical to the previous ones. Now that's what I'd call a major change.

    Actually image doesn't do the justice , if you install FF 23 you will see very different icon.

    I personally like that flat stuff xD. 3D is also awesome, but I like the flat look for icons though.

    Flatness inhibits productivity, fact. Giving depth, transculency, 3D-ness, only helps to increase our productivity. It's the only thing we can do, until we get actual 3D capable workstations - think virtual reality.

    If I gotta look that hard... why is this news?

    It's news because you weren't paying attention in the first place.
