Chihuahua icon changed
« on: January 06, 2020, 09:44:50 PM »
Is it just my computer, or has the Chihuahua icon changed?

It used to be a pinkish pointy-eared animal head (I presume a chihuahua).

But now the icon in the thumbnail on my Google front page is a black letter C on a yellow square with a black line around the perimeter - a bit like the central compulsory letter in all the puzzles except 7-by-many.

Is this a new look for the new year, Alan, or just my computer playing up?

Well spotted, blackrockrose. It's part of a package of changes I'm making, but so far it's gone live only at the alternate site, I'll spell out what's changed when it's fully implemented on both sites.

As for the icon, you're right: the animal is meant to be a chihuahua. I've noticed that on mobile phones and tablets the icon on the browser tab is usually tiny, and difficult to recognise. Many of the most successful websites use a stylised version of their initial letter - e.g. Facebook, Amazon, Google, Netflix. Since Chihuahua is all about letters, the C icon seems a logical way to go.

More info over the next few days.
