A First Look at Firefox 3’s Icons

Filed under

Firefox 3 will contain roughly 120 icons (190 if you count different sizes) on each of the four platforms. While the icons are styled for each platform, we plan on using consistent metaphors and symbols to ensure that interacting with Firefox feels familiar as users move between platforms.
