If you see a chair the first time in your life, you actually need a
label (or somebody telling you what this thing is). Furthermore, not
every piece of software is as commonly known as a chair. There's so

BTW, did you ever try to explain some icon-only thing solely with

If you solve these things, Icons are great.
