Very nice that you've Crystalized RSS icon, but would it be possible to make more constract to it? At least for me it's hard to read the RSS text from the statusbar.

And one KDE devel told me to tell you "it looks too dark". Anyways it's better than the default rss icon, but it can be still improved.

I also commited this to KDE CVS, so it's now the default icon for aKregator's Konqueror plugin. Thanks :)

At first: Thanks to committing it to akregator.

I added two alternatives to the download menu, so you can take a look at them.

And now the problem about it:
* If I make the border of the text thicker... the text becomes edgy in the smaller size
* If I remove the border, the text becomes unreadable because of the crystal-effect (a white layer with a gradient to transparent)
* I have to change the color of the gradient to make the text readable, but then it doesn't look crystal-like anymore

I think the text "RSS"'s outline should
be a little bit brighter, otherwise great!

If I make the text's border thicker the text becomes veeery edgy und it looks ugly. I removed the border at Alternative 1 to 2 under the download link. Take a look at it.

You say that they are free to use for everyone, but you also set the license to GPL. In this case they are not free to use for everyone, but muste be used under the terms of that license.
