Google has a new favicon now. I saw the new favicon for the first time when I was logging into Gmail this morning, and I thought there was something wrong with my browser’s cache or something else. Then a quick search reviled that this is in fact the new favicon of Google.
I think the other “G” favicon was much better, and easily recognizable as the “G” in Google.
But some say,
it makes a lot of sense: the small g is a symbol for infinity. A googol (10100) is just a poor approximation for the huge amount of information that needs to be indexed, organized and made useful by Google.
