Anyone else seeing this? The facicon for the main Google page for me is now a blue star within a blue border.

Screenshot will be added at some point, having problems with file upload at the moment.

First thing I did, and just done again. I can see it on both my PC and my laptop (One IE and one Firefox)

Sorry about this being over-cropped. Anything larger than this is timing-out.

From what part of the world is your connection? Is there anyone near who is seeing that?

view source, do a find for .ico and post the URL if you still see this...

Seeing this from the UK, not spoke to anyone else about it.

I'll try to get the URL

Can't seem to the find the .ico listed anywhere in the source.

Seems to be returning to normal, one PC now shows the 'correct' icon

Stephen Tordoff: Favicons don't need to be mentioned in the source, if it's not in the HTML the browser looks at www.site.com/favicon.ico. Presumably, Google do it this way to shave a few bytes.
