Speaking of colours! Most OSs tend to favour blue in their icons and interfaces, presumably because it’s the world’s favourite colour, and it’s perceived as calming. But I recently had occasion to look through my Applications folder and noticed green slowly encroaching on blue’s space:
It reminds me of those silly Twitter colour wars in 2007, back when that platform was fun. And speaking of keeping things fun: the inclusion of an application here says nothing about whether I want to use it or not, so please don’t email me. It won’t stop the regular stream of rude (and therefore counterproductive) messages I get now and immediately delete, but the rest of you can at least admire my optimism!
I also love that there’s still sufficient differences in their shapes and design that one can pick them out at a glance. The trend in interfaces towards uniform squares is such a bad idea for accessibility; it’s one of many, many reasons I’m holding off on Big Sur.
Colours are fun! I miss having chats about them with my mum.
