New Google Favicon – January 2009

Google introduced a new favicon again today. According to google, its warm and colorful new favicon is inspired by the work of a computer science student in Brazil:

Andr Resende, a computer science undergraduate student at the University of Campinas in Brazil, submitted the design that inspired our new favicon. His placement of a white 'g' on a color-blocked background was highly recognizable and attractive, while seeming to capture the essence of Google.

So, what do you think of the new favicon? Do you like it better than the old one? (This is how the favicon used to look like.)

  1. This one is way better… and more easily recognizable among other tabs in a browser window.
