First #Fennec icon concept submitted! https://forum.f-droid.org/t/new-icon-for-fennec-f-droid/2810/3
@fdroidorg it kinda looks like a doggo
@fdroidorg is there any reason that the app is called "Fennec F-Droid" specifically? Is not like there's currently another know Fennec-named browser going on around, and @mozilla hasn't touched it in quite some time. So I would like to suggest a change to the name and simply call it #Fennec for when a new icon is selected.
@Jbastardov @mozilla @yegortimoshenko It's named according to mozzillas branding scripts: https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/blob/master/mobile/android/branding/unofficial/configure.sh#L6
Fennec is mozzillas codename for firefox android and we are building our variant of it. So I think it makes sense to call it Fennec-Something.
@fdroidorg Great! Also, why not call it just Fennec?
@fdroidorg I like the current one much better. What's wrong with it anyway?
@STP_KITT This one? https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/blob/master/mobile/android/branding/unofficial/res/drawable-xxhdpi/icon.png
A lot of people complained about it.
Yes, that's the icon I meant. It's perfectly fine IMO, I even really like it. Is it the shape that people criticize since it's not a round or squared shape?
@STP_KITT As fas as I can see nobody gave a reason other than "ugly".
Why don't you ask on the forum? https://forum.f-droid.org/t/new-icon-for-fennec-f-droid
