View Full Version : Google Favicon

January 10th, 2009, 05:07 PM
Anybody else noticed the new google favicon? It seems like every time google changes it, it gets uglier.

I liked the previous one better. This new one is just...ugh...

What? This one?

January 10th, 2009, 05:40 PM
I like it :)

I don't like it. I don't think it's terrible, but it just doesn't scream 'Google' at me, which is what favicons are for.

i like it, it is cooler

Every time I see it I keep thinking I somehow ended up on AVG's website. :|

The little icon that appears next to the name of the website in your browser's tabs or bookmarks

I don't mind it, it's just a tiny little icon anyway. Who cares.

Like the icon that you see next to website address in your browser. For instance, there is an ubuntu favicon at the top of my screen next to the link.

I just now finally noticed the 'g' cutout in the favicon. I get it now. Bad idea though.

I think it's ugly.
But that's just my opinion. It's their favicon they can make it ugly if they want.

It is still, and has always been a lower-case blue double-stacked 'g', for me. So I honestly have no clue as to what you guys are talking about.

January 10th, 2009, 06:52 PM
im getting the normal g one...

January 10th, 2009, 06:55 PM
I like it.

You can't see the new one because of browser cache. go to http://www.google.com/favicon.ico and press CTRL + F5 to refresh the cache for it, and the new logo will show up.

I don't really like the new one. I didn't like the lowercase blue g either.

Ah, I see. Thanks for that info. Btw, I like it.

reminds me vaguely of the south african flag actually...I preferred the old one over this.

It's not very obvious that there's a 'g' there, I was wondering if Opera was loading the wrong favicon or something when I noticed it.

As with the changing of Google's last favicon, tons of people will say they hate it but will slowly get used to it and start liking it.

That said, I like it.

January 10th, 2009, 08:54 PM
These are my favicons!:)

January 10th, 2009, 09:13 PM
I love it. It reminds me of the Google artist. That looks like his style.

January 10th, 2009, 09:20 PM
I like the first one best, this one is ok... I never got used to the previous one, I never associated with Google.

The new favicon is undoubtedly ugly. I'm waiting for Google to come up with something prettier soon...

With some voodoo I managed to bring this zombie thread back to life..:lolflag:

I think we should have had a poll for this. ;)

I like it. I think its cool although it does remind me of AVGs.
