YOUAP, Andrew, nimd4, kfft, Goosey, John23 and jigarsh - just from this page.
This change of icon discussion has been going on for quite a while now if you care to read the whole thread. There were a few major contributors and this is what they have come up with. If you do not like what you see now, perhaps you should have taken part in the earlier discussion. All your comments are negative whinges without a word of thanks for this tremendous extension. You need to remember that views on things like icons are personal opinions and as such no view is right or wrong, but it is what the thread contributors have come up with. Other people like me are happy with the new icons or indifferent to the changes, so I do not believe they are universally disliked.
If you prefer the old icons, just go to where Wladimir pointed you - http://userstyles.org/style/show/1196
, follow the instructions and you have them back. Some themes change them as well.
Having done a number of system implementations over the years it has become very apparent that people make a lot more noise about something they have lost from the old system rather than what they have gained from the new one, and it can be very demoralising for the implementer.
I'm more than a little irritated by the fact that you have included me in that list of unappreciative whiners.
The whole point of my post was to provide feedback. I specifically went out of my way to show clear appreciation for this extension, and the hours and hours of work that obviously goes into it.
However, I think you'll find that the majority of the Adblock Plus userbase does NOT keep tabs on this extensions development process (They likely either dont know about this place, or, like me, dont have the time). As such, they, like me, only knew of the icon change when it actually happened when the extension was updated.
Therefore, despite a relatively small active area of the Adblock Plus userbase seemingly approving the new icon. The majority seem to disagree, and seem to be calling for the old one's return?
Given that the majority of users have no idea as to what userChrome.css even is, the area of code to be copied and pasted there is also of no help.
Again, this is not a dig, this is an attempt at helpful feedback.
I hope its taken on board when the extensions developer decides where to go from here.
Again, Adblock Plus is a fantastic and must needed extension. It obviously takes a lot of work, and I becieve with some confidence that I speak for the whole community when I say that the extension developers efforts are very very much appreciated.
Hope this helps!
