Why Google Changed Their FavICON

You may have noticed that Google has a new favicon, the small icon you see in your browser next to the URL or in your bookmarks list.

Few days ago Google changed their favicon, from “Big G” to “small g“. It was a surprise! Why would google change the “Big G” which is recognised all over the world!

Lots of questions filled my head…
• Why would google change the “Big G” which is recognised all over the world and create a dip in its brand recognition.
• Is this one of the google’s marketing trick to create buzz(as if they need one!)
• Is it trying to re-brand? (why would they do! everything is working more than fine for them)

No need to ponder more... I just "googled" it and found the answer on their own blog.
