That's cute, but maybe you should have used the transparent PNG image for the moon (available in our branding materials) instead of something with a white background causing a pretty ragged looking white-edged moon.

Damnit Yami, you should know better than to hotlink.

http://www.palemoon.org/branding.shtml has all the information AND the linked zip file (in proper context).

Yeah, you are right. I should have used a branding page link instead. Sorry.

And since I'm at it I also (fixed?) modified slightly this one.
You can see the difference if the logo is on a colored background.

Well, in my country this kind of modification would be considered a derivative work.

The color combo of the OP's button is wrong, the font is wrong, the design is wrong the phrase is clunky and the plea doesn't work in today's world anyway so the purpose of why you created it is lacking.

Please don't modify branding materials no matter if you think it's an "improvement"

Also, please stick to the branding rules outlined on the branding page if you are actually planning to publish anything using the logo or wordmark.

Take note of:
Using custom promotional slogans or catch phrases in relation to the browser without clearing those with the owner first is strongly discouraged, to prevent potentially undesired impressions to the public or conflicts with other products. If you wish to use a custom slogan/catch phrase in relation to the browser, that has not been officially published before, then please get in touch with the owner before publication to discuss.

Thanks for making this and sharing it. Doing so, especially here, takes a bit of courage. I admire you for that.

Care to elaborate on the apperent subtext of that?

This is good and nostalgially reminds of the old 'switch to internet explorer' and 'switch to netscape' buttons that were everywhere on the web in the 1990s. Maybe also should have 'browser' in the text because no one will know what Pale Moon is.
