The Chron.com (The Houston Chronicle’s web site) re-visualized it’s site some time ago, using their new green logo. (Everyone loves to be green)
But their micro image, known as a favicon, seems to be vestigial. I never like the old icon, with a built in pointer on it. I know the pointer was their whole logo, but the favicon could have done without it. And they prob’ly want to “green it up” with the rest of their site.
