Safari version of the standard feed icon


Matt Brett created a reproduction of the standard feed icon (now used by Firefox and soon used by IE 7) in a diverse array of formats.

Safari, OTOH, uses a simple “RSS” icon.

Safari's default icon: white text, reading “RSS”, on a blue rounded-rectangle.

I'd prefer that it used the standard feed icon. Matt Brett created an implementation which works, but the white part of the icon is drawn off-center. So I created a new version in PostScript, centered perfectly. This also served as my way of learning to do shadings (gradients) in PostScript.

The file below contains the standard feed icon in a form usable by Safari, with an Installer package for installing it and an Installer package for reverting to Safari's normal icon.

a zip archive that includes all four icons: show and hide, unpressed and pressed. includes instructions (plain text format) and a .url link to Matt Brett's site for the icons.
