    Newest Google Favicon

    Has anyone seen it? It's kind of strange looking. I just got used to the other new one too.

    When I look for the Google search results tab in Firefox I think it's a different site all together.

    Hmm, first the Chrome icon looks a lot like the Windows icon, now this.

    Primary colors + green = World domination!

    I guess Google's still trying to figure out how to do this many-strong-colours-on-separate-letters thing in a compact form. For the record I preferred the first favicon they used, but this one is better than the last one.

    Google has been trying to figure out their fav icon forever. This one is no better than any past ones in my opinion. You guys should check out this article for an overview of most of them (and the one that should have been picked):

    I am not really that fussed to be honest.

    What i am interested in would be how much time and money they have spent on this. I think it would be funny to get a look at that. At the end of the day who on this planet that uses a computer does not know what google is and what percentage of them are bothered what colour schemes they use.

    P.S. I like the first one
