Amen, brother! No color, no text, and underwhelming icon design a trifecta! I haven't seen any toolbar icons in 10.8 that I would hold up as a example of how this change improves the user experience, so this is not a problem limited to Omni's offerings, and this post should not be construed as an attack on same, just wishing they hadn't chosen to follow Apple's lead ofF this particular cliff. While the emperor does have new clothes, he is not nearly stylish enough to pull off the gray on gray look, and ought to have his personal stylist reassigned to somewhere where an appreciation of color might develop.
