The Blogosphere got in a tizzy recently after Google decided to change its favicon (the little icon in your address bar thatâ€™s unique to each site).
To address those that demanded answers from the big G, Google has written a post about the new favicon, and explained that â€œthe reason is that we wanted to develop a set of icons that would scale better to some new platforms like the iPhone and other mobile devicesâ€.
Personally, Iâ€™m not a fan of the little G, and would have preferred that they stick with the big G, but apparently theyâ€™ve got some goals in mind, since they â€œtried in total more than 300 permutationsâ€.
Apparently they wanted something distinctive and noticeable, as well as something that embraced the colorfulness of the logo, yet wouldnâ€™t date itself, and considering the amount of feedback they received from people who noticed the change, I think they succeeded.
Rest assured though, if you canâ€™t stand the new favicon, let them know, because they â€œreally value feedback form users and want to hear your ideasâ€.
