I'll confess I didn't think of it that way. So you're saying it's the basic idea of a dot and two waves on orange that the 'standard icon' is? If it is, then I guess that makes quite a bit more sense :) (And, yes, I'll be changing my icon soon :D)

hardly enough to justify saying they started "anew" not sure how you're comparing anyway, you don't have a large version of the "new" one (You'll note the images you're referring to are from a mock-up and no where on that page does it say those are the finished icons). If the stylizations here are enough to say it's completely different, then how are people to know what your orange icon means, and how can you say IE has successfully adopted the Mozilla icon when it's facing an entirely different direction? but really you need to decide which side of the fence your on about this "standard." Either it's an important standard that needs to be followed strictly because even the slightest variation confuses users, or stylization is allowed. Unless you're going to change the rss icon you use, you should probably be arguing the latter.

Nope, I'm not. Then again, I didn't write the original one, so I can simply claim not to like it :P The new logo isn't the same - it has a bevel and the 'waves' have steeper curves as far as I can see...

I'm sorry, I don't see the difference except that it's shiny... meanwhile I see you're not using the "real" icon yourself.
