As of Ice Cream Sandwich, the new standard icon for menus is three vertically aligned squares as such:
Before that, the menu expansion was three horizontal lines like this, but without the triangle:
Annoyingly enough, that icon (again, without the triangle) looks a lot like a list. In fact it looks so much like it that I have a hard time picking something else to signify a list view of something.
Even Google's own Roman Nurik has used that icon for a list (pre-ICS):
But yet it's not consistent or clear that it is not the menu icon. I have gotten feedback from multiple long-time Android users that the list view looks like a menu icon to them. Even worse, Facebook still uses the list to mean menu:
And Chrome on OS X uses it to mean menu as well (Jelly Bean Android uses the three squares):
So my question is this:
What is the correct (according to Google) and consistent icon to indicate a list view as of the latest Google OS?
Is confusion from users to be expected and should we just deal with it until pre-ICS users die off and everyone is on board with the new icon set?
