Adblock icon in Safari

In Safari, because all the toolbar icons are grey, I don't know if Adblock is enabled or disabled (I might have to disable it sometimes and forget to re-enbling it). It seems to be tight to Safari with no option. So instead of using color to show the current extension status, couldn't it be two icons, one for each state? Something like "normal icon" and "crossed icon" ?

    Hi Axel,

    Thank you for your suggestion! Apple's design guidelines require us to make the AdBlock button gray to match Safari's interface. We agree with you, this makes for a poor user experience. I'll pass your idea to our team for consideration!
