Google’s New Favicon (Again)





the-guide
After the last change happened in May 2008, recently, have you noticed that
Google changed their favicon once more (with four color areas –
blue, red, green and yellow – overlaid by a white letter 'g') showing in the
address bar and elsewhere.

I remember the topic about this, last time it changes. I also remember thinking the blue favicon was really boring.

The new one however...WOWZA! I love it, really colorful and interesting to look at. Fun and filled with the essence of google. Good going google!

Hopefully they'll keep this one for a while, so things don't start to get confusing Twisted Evil

Yes, the people at Google constantly need things to do. Razz

It does look better than the old favicon though.

Yeah, a lot better than the old... I like this new look as well. Smile

I agree, the old favicon was ugly and boring.

This new one is much better. Very interesting to look at.

I like how often they update everything, it keeps visitors coming back in my opinion. I think it's nice to come there every holiday to find a new Google image on the home page.

I hate the new Google favicon, but here's a Frihost equivalent anyway:

The old icon was part of their brand, it is always risky messing with your brand.

The new one looks nice, I hope it works out for them.

The main page updates and logo changes are interesting, sometimes you learn things from it. They have generated some heat for not putting up logos for certain days though:
