    I actually like the icon. I liked the 3d look in the old one, but this 2d icon isn't bad.

    Ermmm ... the old icon seemed to have been worked on a lot & 'designed', the new icon looks like it was cut out of construction paper! ;)

    Agreed. I've seen better design from 4th graders.

    idk, the old icon had a more high tech look which i felt matched chrome, the new one has a nice minimalistic design which i like as well, but i think the old icon was better for chrome

    The Chromium icon, with its blue colors, look good, but Chrome's icon... they better stick with the older one.

    I love it. Much better than that obsolete 1990s bling thing. You did a great job!

    Yeah, sorry Mr Sputnik. I just really did prefer the 'blingy' Chrome icon. Oh no ... I've turned into a chav! :D ;)

    What's interesting is that all other major web browsers have gone for a more realistic, 2.5D effect. But it's not only web browsers, most icons in general nowadays look like that.

    I wonder why Google wants to go with such a simplistic, flat 2D look.
