    Mozilla’s got seven new potential logos, but I don’t think I like any of them. Really, the Firefox logo seems like Picasso compared to what I see here.

    Each of the seven concepts we’re sharing today leads with and emphasizes a particular facet of the Mozilla story. From paying homage to our paleotechnic origins to rendering us as part of an ever-expanding digital ecosystem, from highlighting our global community ethos to giving us a lift from the quotidian elevator open button, the concepts express ideas about Mozilla in clever and unexpected ways. There are no duds in the mix. The hard part will be deciding among them, and this is a good problem to have.

    The only winning move is not to play.

    I guess they don't know what a graphics artist is. Those all exit the blow hole quickly.

    That should bring down Mozilla's problem count to 92 from 99.

    If I had to choose I would go with "With you from the start" but I would go with same colors Firefox branding uses.

    They are fine, but nothing awesome. They will pick one, but all we will ever see is the FireFox logo anyway, so nothing will change.

    They all suck. They look like they hired the same moron that designed the Win 8/8.1/10 flat crap.

    "We’re updating our brand identity using Mozilla open source principles, and everyone’s invited."

    What a great idea. Open source consistently produces beautiful, brilliant design.

    Were they all made with MS Paint?

    Why not just go with something simple and dignified?

    Ah, another distraction from the metric fuckton of bugs in Firefox that they refuse to fix while they add a shitton of "features" that nobody ask for while removing features people actually like.

    Fuck off, Mozilla. Your software is bad and you should feel bad.

    As a living creature with at least one marginally-functioning optical unit, these logos suck.

    The eye of sauron(because it totally makes sense to imply that the company is spying on their users?), some squiggly lines that look like an attempt at someone to make a generic "ethnic" corporate logo or maybe a Hallmark card for a holiday I've never heard of(even when it's spelled out horizontally it looks like a mess), a restroom sign for steering wheels, a wire frame... something(doesn't look like an M)? An M that looks like something from a CGA graphics game circa 1985(because something that reminds me of tech from over 30 years ago is what I want running on my computers today), and origami garbage that doesn't look like anything.

    The only one that isn't horrendous is the Moz://a but even that looks like some pretentious cyber hipster nonsense.

    I did not... and that first rule. LOL.

    Sigh, sucks. I use firefox... or rather a variant. I have been thinking of switching to srwiron but my bookmarks!

    Holy fucking hell...what a bunch of pansy ass bullshit. Mozilla can just die for all I care, I don't feel one bit bad about dumping their buggy, POS browser now.

    Just export your bookmarks. Everything can export/import everything else's bookmarks these days. And I see no appeal in Mozilla's rendering engine these days. Firefox 1.0 was fantastic back in the day, it kickstarted the browser wars.

    But Gecko has since been supplanted by Webkit and Blink. If you really want to stay in the Gecko tree, look at Pale Moon or Waterfox. srwiron is fine but is probably not as good an option as vanilla Chromium, if you really want the Blink engine. Vivaldi looks like a decent option. Opera is now kill due to its acquisition by a Chinese company. Midori is probably the best option for Webkit on Windows; Safari is still the king on Mac OS.

    To be honest, I have long felt firefox has gone down the winamp path... after 3 win amp seemed to consistently become slower. I think FF4 was when it started to go down that path, but then I got PaleMoon which I'm currently using and it seemed to have gotten back to the good ol' days. But in the last 5 or so releases it hasn't been all that great either, seems to be slowing down as well.

    Speed was also why I gave up on Netscape, despite liking it a lot back in the days.

    I know about the exporting of bookmarks, I usually have a back up every now and then so I don't lose it all in case something happens. I'm just using it as a reason to be lazy.

    most of those look like ads from early 90s websites, all made with some free graphics software that came with your printer

    Ok? Actions have consequences. You don't get to donate to hate groups and keep a high profile position at a tech company. Boo fucking hoo.

    I do because I like Firefox. SJW or not, I'll take them everyday over Google's spy ware.
