It’s only been 6 months or so since Google last updated their favicon, but they’ve decided to do it again.

Inspired by André Resende, the new favicon is the result of Google encouraging user submissions after their last favicon update.

Personally I think changing it after 6 months is a bad idea simply because it’s change too often. People like the familiarity aspect of a brand icon and this just doesn’t instill that. It looks like it could change again too pretty soon judging by their official blog.

Here’s an example of what it looks like in case you haven’t seen it yet:
