    >the motivation for Google to roll out its third design in less than a year, as it attempts to get its favicon right, becomes clear

    as mud. There's no explanation I see here about this particular design, just the lecture on design evolution and the presumption that it will change yet again. What a bunch of vapor marketing and pseudoanalysis.

    Wow... looks like the MS Windows flag rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise, with a 'g' removed.

    Has MS purchased a part of Google? Hmmm.....

    All kidding aside, I like my search engine to be platform / vendor / etc... independent. Google works so far for that <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    Google is only platform-independent for some particular values of the term platform.

    Many times one sees something stylised, then stylised again, over and over until no one can understand or even guess what it’s supposed to be or look like.

    Good.
    Because it didn't show up here at this locked-down site using IE 6.0.2900.
    Shame really, I was all ready to roll out my new logo, initially "G" for "Greaves", then thought that was too hard and exclusive and was going to use "g" as softer, and phonetically-inclusive of Jupiter.
    Sigh.
    Oh well.
