I like the new icons

Oftentimes people are quick to complain about any UI changes, so I just wanted to pipe up and say that I like what you’ve done with the icons (folder icons and menu icons) in Brave 1.59.76. I always thought the shaded yellow folder icons looked a bit old fashioned, so I am happy to see the new monochrome version. Additionally, the icons within the file menu are a nice touch.


Could you please let me know why your version of Brave is different than mine as I see the latest version as follows:

Release Notes v1.57.62 (Sep 6, 2023)

And my browser indicates:
Brave is up to date: Version 1.57.62 Chromium: 116.0.5845.180 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Thank you.

Information from the future.

You’re correct - 10 Sept 2023 - the current release is 1.57.62

The OP is - correctly - tagged ‘Nightly Builds’.

Here’s the URL for the Brave Release Schedule.

If you scroll down, you’ll see: 1.59.x was available through the ‘Beta & Dev channel’ on 5 Sept; on the ‘Nightly channel’ on Aug 8.

FYI: like you, I wait for ‘current’ releases. On that channel, 1.59.x should be available mid-October.

Hey @Fuller1754! Glad to hear you like the new icons, I’ve passed the feedback on to our designer!

Unfortunately I’ve just rolled back the folder icons change, but hopefully we’ll get a new design out for them at some point. The app menu is staying though! Let me know if you notice anything missing!

Oh no! It’s more folder icon drama! (See also New folder icons look out of place). Ah well. Something more modern looking would be nice.

I’ll just add something I’ve said before. Brave has done some really good icon work. Your Settings page, the browser toolbar, the Brave Search SERP page, and now the hamburger menu all have good looking icons. You just need folder icons that are of consistent design with all the others.
