I agree the red A logo is not as nice as the shiny blue one we've had for a couple of versios (until the latest)

::) I wasn't planning to comment on this particular issue because I've just been generally overwhelmed by AB's improved performance and reliability.  But now that the red :P logo is back  -  wow - well, as they say, you don't really miss something good until it's gone! I much preferred the blue logo.  If the "a looks like a q" question is that distracting, why not change the "q" ;) to "A" like the "A" in the gawdy red logo?  
Please bring back the blue! Chant it with me now, Please bring back the blue!

I much prefer the RED logo, but the poll is not in my favor.  Why not give us a choice of logos that we could use on our own computers whatever Anderson's choice is, maybe even more than the two?

It doesn't matter to me........I liked the Red Logo...I liked the Blue logo............BUT I like the browser even better than the logos.............but since I now have Red logos everywhere I could change them........it would be extra work for me to change them back on all my skins, etc., that I have........but IF I have to do so......well......that's what I would do..

I don't exactly know how important the logo is but I do prefer the BLUE LOGO over the old red style. ----Norman Hunter

I only see a red x where a picture should be but isn't currently. :(
If it ain't broken, you haven't "tweaked" it enough.

WAHHHH I MISS MR. BLUE

he was my best friend

now we have to live back in the 90's where the new style isnt in effect and we dont have molds of colors but are stuck with BOLD COLORS   its my worst nightmare all over again

I prefer a blue icon, the older small letter a or a capital A would be fine, just keep it blue please. I'll use 8.01 build 112 in the meantime  :)

agree with the others - the blue one is more stylish and looks way smoother than the aggressive red logo.

please bring it back, thanks.

Im going to have to cast my vote for Blue also.  Image

Although, having a choice of logos that can be changed on the fly would be awesome too. I know its not essential to the workings of AB, but the look and feel is very important to the Avant Browser experience. Ive done some programming myself, and I think this would be fairly easy to implement.

I agree: clearly the solution is to embed all the icons for which Avant has permission to use, as resources, into the executable.

  One will be chosen by the developer which he feels best represents his work...
and the rest of us will choose the one we like on our "desktop-of-the-moment".

I'm actually pretty partial to the blue logo colour, myself.  That's where my vote would be.  Although I love the new capital A.  My dh, just TWO days ago, said, "You mean, click this Q here??"  LOL  I'd never thought of it as a Q, but that's how he saw it.

So - Q gone, that's good.
Red back, that's bad.

IMHO, of course.

Q & A

Post by search53 » Mon Aug 04, 2003 10:47 pm

There was never any doubt in my mind - it was a Q.

I just figured that the name of the software company that was responsible for Avant Browser began with the letter Q. Never "cared" enough to really question it beyond that.

I do prefer the blue color, though. If the right side of the "a" was more obviously straight (and not look curved), it would help. Or, as someone else suggested, use a capital A in the blue icon.

That's an improvement - and has motivated me to find a font that comes close to the logo, but looks more like an "a." If all goes well, you should see an example below (please keep in mind that I'm no artist).
