Google’s New Favicon – lowercase g

Google decided to join the “rebranding and logo changes” bandwagon by changing its favicon to a lowercase borderless g from the traditional G with a border.

The new favicon looks a little dull, but maybe its because I was used to the G for many years.

  1. Search Engine Land has an official position from Google:
    “We recognized there was a need for a Google icon that would better work across multiple applications including web, mobile and client applications. We felt the small ‘g’ had many of the characteristics that best represent our brand: it’s simple, playful, and unique. We will be looking to improve and enhance this icon as we move forward.“
