"Peter" on http://dhruba.codewordt.co.uk/blog/2004/09/11/80/ thinks the RSS button looks like it says "ASS".
Fixed, or rather made irrelevant.

Just curious how this was fixed or made irrelevant. I'm seeing it that way now also.
Sasquach, fifth item on http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/archives/000583.html.
Although the Burning Edge ( http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/ ) site mentions that this is reflected in the branch build, I don't see it yet with the Windows and the MacOS X version. And... is the new icon represent the RSS well? It looks like an icon for some wireless thing.
Created attachment 163834 [details] Compare old vs. cleaned RSS-Logo This image contains the current (FF 1.0PR Windows) RSS logo next to a redone version.
I agree with Jong. I don't think that the new version does good in saying "RSS Feed Found". It actually really says "wireless". The main problem with the old version was the letter 'R' which had no good readability in such a small logo. My guess is that Helvetica was used. The right "leg" of the "R" stems too far on the right making it look like an "A" with a rounded top. I cleaned up the background a bit and changed to the font to one with a better "R" - where the right "leg" stems more from below the "belly" hence giving a more clearly diagonal appearance. I choose to make the letters not so "fatty" which adds to the readability, too. Comments welcome. Attachmet above.
