Okay folks, I'll be incorporating the 16x16 icon with increased contrast for y'all in the next version.

Just a Paler Moon icon. Thank Goodness. I thought my Pale Moon was disabled (grayed out) by some evil Google conspiracy!
Sponge, My thoughts exactly when I logged in today. LOL :coffee:

I'm going to add my two cents in here.

With my poor eyesight, the tweaked version doesn't look any better to my eyes than the new icon. On my Titlebar, it's is ok. But on my white panel Taskbar, it is poor. And since I'm not a power user, I'm not going to jump through hoops to make something easier to see because I'll screw it up.

And I'll even include an attachment so you can see my Titlebar and my Taskbar with the new icon. Of course, you'll have to left click on the attachment to make it larger and easier to see.

As for people's opinions on the logo, they are noted but it won't change a thing.
The same thing happened the last time we changed the logo and there was even more resistance back then for going for a starker blue more photographic one instead of a painted one (with people calling it "blue moon" instead, etc.). Still, everyone got used to the new logo then. Just give it some time to get acquainted with the new, actually pale, more artistic moon.

Oh and Night Wing:
If your eyesight is poor, then maybe you shouldn't be using the default mid-grey system color for your taskbar to begin with. It promotes low contrast for just about any icon no matter how designed. Try using a dark grey or dark color for the taskbar, instead.

Just my $0.02.
