Has Anyone Noticed Google’s New Favicon

While consuming some of Google’s web services today (which is something I do a lot of), I noticed they have a new Favicon, as seen below.

Seems Google went from a capital G to a little g. Perhaps they’re trying to be ‘softer’?

I have seen it on Google Maps, Google Reader, Gmail, and many other Goog sites.

Interesting none the less 🙂
