Thanks for the proposal Tom! My concerns with the initial proposal would be
- using the magnifying glass which otherwise stands for zooming in a different context
Good point. Options:
- magnifying glass without the
- replace magnifying glass with binoculars (do we have any SVGs with binoculars in QGIS which we can reuse/borrow?)
- something else?
- reliance on text in the icon which otherwise looks like the Add WMS layer icon
True. Any ideas/options would be valuable.
I've posted another icon with (still) the WMS globe but glasses (from the overview icons) for review/comment in https://issues.qgis.org/attachments/9786/MetaSearch.svg

Thanks Tom, I think that's going the right direction. Have you tried some binoculars, like you previously mentioned? e.g. https://thenounproject.com/search/?q=binoculars#
I see that you reused the glasses from the overview icons. If I remember correctly, there's a recent discussion on the mailing list about removing the overview menu entries at least. If all overview icons are thrown out, I guess it would be fine to reuse the glasses as a "search" symbol. Otherwise, maybe lets try your initial binocular idea.
