Especially in Mail and Safari. With the grey background of the toolbars and sidebars themselves the icons barely stand out. In Firefox most ot the toolbar icons are fairly bold and easier to see, but in the native Mac apps they are so dull it's difficult for me to make them out. I don't have a machine in the house that still has Snow Leopard to compare but it seems to me that all the icons got smaller and lost whatever color or contrast they had. Besides the current glitches in the OS I really don't like the look of the applications as they are now. The only things that stand out and are easily visible are the three red, yellow, green window buttons.

Sadly, no. Those gray icons are here to stay unless Apple has a change of heart about them or some third-party vendor comes out with a fix.

    Thanks. i remember my first experience with an Apple computer was on OS 10.2 Jaguar. I remember thinking how much more vivid everything looked compared to Windows machines at the time. That really sold me on the whole Apple experince. This seems like a big step back, smaller, unalterable hard to read fonts and icons. Ugh!
