Google Gets A New Favicon

Techcrunch just reported that Google just unveiled a new favicon for its websites, which is much more colorful than the plain g’ it was using earlier.

The new favicon uses colors from the default Google logo. We think that this logo will definitely not go down as one of Google’s better creative decisions amongst regular users.

  • It looks more like a left-ward-facing paw print to me… actually maybe not… but I dislike it anyway.

    Uhhh, to be Google savvy should not you include the original favicon …The upper case G enclosed in the multi-coloured square. FTW, freedom thru wisdom!

  • I like the old favicon. The new one is not so attractive.

  • I only noticed this the other day when logging into Adsense. I quite like it.

  • I like the older one better as well. Simpler, cleaner. The new one’s just a bit of a mess. :O

  • This new favicon looks great to be honest. Hopefully google will release some more colourful changes.

  • you know, I saw this and didn’t know what it meant. It’s a bit confusing

  • I guess I like it, but it throws me off when I want to switch back to a tab for search or adsense… Unfortunately, it reminds me of Microsoft… the colors even go in the same order, though flipped 45 degrees.
