Hi all, I don't know if you know this but I'd like to share it with you
Google  recently changed his favicon (an icon representing your site) from a capital G to a minuscle g. Well, most don't like it so here it is:
google decided to open for suggestions of new favicons

RESTRICTIONS:
resolution: 16 pixel x 16 pixel image
format: .png, .gif, or .ico
size: 5 KB
transparency: 32 bit alpha transparency

GUIDELINES:
Make the shape and profile visible.
Incorporate some or all of the letters in "Google."
Utilize the primary colors that are used in the Google logo.
Avoid being product specific.
Be timeless.

all these specs are available as well as the submit form on the following url:
