Google Blue FaviconIt has been three years since Google changed their favicon to the multi colored icon we have today. But now we are seeing reports of some users reporting a new all blue favicon being tested by Google.

The image to the right show off the new all blue Google Favicon. You can see it at as well, to prove this is something Google is hosting.

It looks the same structurally as the colored one most of us see today - but this is one is all blue. Here is an enlarged colored favicon:

That launched in January 2009, between May 2008 – January 2009 we had the blue lowercase G, and from who knows when till May 2008 we had the classic G with colored box. Here is the history of those icons in the URL bar.

I am not sure if Google will go all blue soon or if this is for a specific Google property only.
