Trying to Improve YouTube’s Favicon by Applying Subpixel Techniques

Miha at tried improving the readability of the YouTube favicon – that 16x16 thing sitting in places like the browser address bar – by going into subpixel improvements. The results are shown above (original to the left, new version to the right). Miha says YouTube’s current icon is “so unreadable” and adds, “If you want to be suprised: white text on red is not really white, it is purple & yellow!” Which icon do you think is better?
