Browser URL Icons
« on: July 17, 2011, 10:14:28 PM »
I know there's a name for those icons, but I don't remember it.  However, I notice that the NWS is changing theirs for some reason.  I notice that WU changed theirs when they remodeled the site.

I am attaching a picture of the old and new url icons for nws.  The new icons are 10 and K and the old (darker blue) icons are C and N.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I could see the old icons better.  The new ones look kind of florescent.  I wonder why they have to change things that are ok to start with?

favicon is how I know them.

Looks like they're using the NOAA logo instead of the NWS logo for some reason.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

    Never knew they had a name but should have suspected as much.  I did notice somplace along the line they had changed because I have 12 of them on my favorites bar.  It was very close to the same time I noticed WU had changed cause all of a sudden there was an icon that I did not recognize.  I believe I noticed these about 2 weeks ago.  But time seems to be flying by so fast it is hard to know as I really did not pay a lot of attention to it.  Actually I thought my memory was just bad and that things really hadn't changed until a week after that point.         :oops: #-o
