Dear gods! What happened to the little tab bar(?) icon for google? They've gone to plaid!

Edit: Okay, after checking various blog posts and such i now have a vague memory of them switching form the upper-case 'G' to the lower-case 'g' awhile back. However although i didn't think the change was an improvement i don't remember the same immediate and overwhelming response of "My eyes! The goggles do nothing!" (I suppose i could go back and check to see if i thought it was worth making a post about at the time =)

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Awful looking, though I suppose I'll get used to it.

I too was seriously unsettled. What the heck?

I think all of the 4 they decided not to use are better than the one they did. Primarily, I think, because with the G off center you lose some of the letter when the favicon is surrounded by white.

I agree, the three they outright rejected were a lot better, and the one that "inspired" them at least had a good color balance and use of the lower case g shape. How they started with that and then decided to move on to the current abomination is probably one of those things man was not meant to know =P

Speaking as a woman, I'm not in on the secret, either ;-P

How about speaking as a google employee? ;)
