The old icon is on the left, the new one is on the right.

Sadly 16x16 is really small dimensions to make anything easily, so it was either shrink it down to be blurry like the old one, or crop it.

I like it. I agree, the old one was a little blurry.

I would stick with the old one. I think it works well.

I'd like it to be just in between the old and the new. The new is clearer, but I'd like it to have a chin LOL.

Cheers,
Sarah.

It looks like a "cut-off", why don't you use "HTG" or recognizable colors as your Favicon? Make it a contest who can design the "coolest" icon. I'm sure you will have plenty to choose from! :)

hey HTG,

i go for a more recognizable, multi-colored favicon that tells you whose web real estate you are viewing. yeah why not a contest for the best favicon? but please don't limit it to mainland US.

I like the old one better. I'm with all the other guys in making a contest. Should have some good results.

I would agree to hold a competition to see how can design the best, the winner could be chosen by a poll? What you think Geek?
