    I think I liked the previous one more, it was better fitting logo colors.

    Re: favicon

    Was looking for a little more punch. I may still play with it.

    I think I prefer the previous favicon.

    What's a favicon?

    I think the old favicon colors were fine; the new colors look retro. The only change I would like to see with the favicon is that the letters P and F should be fatter, to match the logo.

    The previous one appeals to me more.

    I don't see favicons anymore, so can't say. They don't display on the iPad, and the last Firefox upgrade I did on the other macs broke all of the favicons. Some don't show at all and some are just empty boxes where it should be.

    Oh no, the retro look is back!

    I really quite like the newest version, so I think we are staying put. Because IE caches the favicon is bizarre fashion some of you might be a few versions older which I agree were not top notch. The newest version is clear, bold, good colors and better typesetting.

    Normally I would not comment on something like this. But I have to agree with others that the old one looks better.

    But then again, you're the man.

    Just to be clear this attached image is the old one vs the new one. The old one was hard to see, can barely see the F and it has two white lines that are mistakes that is so sloppy.

    If it's still up for debate, I'd like to vote for the old one. :biggrin:

    You could always make the letters bold and the green darker to give it more contrast.

    It shows next to the url:

    This is a bit different compared to the one Borek attached, and looks better than both to be honest.

    Here's a suggested tweak...
    The P is rounded and raised 1 pixel.
    The F is lowered 1 pixel.
