    Google has a Favicon

    Looks like google got a favicon! I kind of liked it without a favicon, for some reason.

    I thought it used to have a different favicon?
    But either way the new one stands out and doesn't fit in with the rest of the page. Pretty ugly even.

    Yeah I think it used to have a favicon too, like a blue, capitalized serif G (blue or red on white background). But this new favicon also caught my eye.

    Oh yeah, you're right! It fit in so well with the rest of the page I didn't really notice it. Now that you mention it, that is the same icon on the quick search toolbar.

    That's because the old one actually looked well and went with the page. The new one doesn't fit in and sticks out. Really ugly

    Depends what your iGoogle theme is like. To be honest it's a general fail

    yea count me in as one of those people who don't like the favicon. I liked it better without one.

    I like but I think it should be transparent.

    I thought it was transparent? I see it taking on a nasty greyish color when I'm using the network computer in IE7, and I can see my loading-barish thing in the address bar through it

    Just my two cents here, I really am not a fan of the new google favicon at all, as some have said it just doesnt blend in at all.

    I guess I will still use google though

    Hmm so it is transparent. There seems to be a darker transparency towards the bottom.

    I personally liked the old one. Where did the purplish color come from?
