It’s time to say hello to ‘Moz://a’!
From the bottom of my heart, I just want to say Congratulations!
Mozilla new logo is okay now because it’s no longer ill. You get what I mean? 🙂
In 2016, Mozilla, the Internet company owns well-known Firefox browser, took the first step in rebranding by opening the door to public comment. With some options on display, Mozilla asked for feedbacks and input from all who interested in sharing.
I think it’s terrific, even it’s not as crazy as some of the other submissions:

Internet Solutions New Logo Has Been Released
The Mozilla new logo is officially released!
Today, Mozilla new logo is officially released, and the simple change is made as a friendly reminder that Mozilla is more than just a browser.
The smart part of the new logo is that the “ill” has been changed to “://” which forms a part of every web address. Putting the heart of internet inside your wordmark, it’s pretty clever!
The wordmark was made by “Protocol,” one of the first entrants that Mozilla showed off. But it absolutely had more… life to it in previous iterations. In the 2nd round, the wordmark was bordered by a form that accentuated the “://” characters further, but apparently since then the decision was made to opt for a simpler look.
The logo uses a new font named Zilla, made by Typotheque. It’s free, an open-source font that’s meant to evoke both Courier – a classic for coding – and a ‘journalistic feel’. According to Mozilla, everyone can design the logo by easily typing ‘moz://a’ in Zilla and highlighting the text.
The Mozilla new logo certainly shouts out ‘internet’, is more clever than the plain-jane old one, and can be colorized for different uses. Of course, not everybody feels as good about it, with YouTube commenters using a myriad of ‘://’ face jokes. But then again, that’s the YouTube comment section.
