Google Gets a Favicon

Google Finally Gets a Favicon but not for Microsoft IE?

Am I that oblivious or have I never noticed it before?

But I do remember having looked for Google's Favicon in the past. 

But it appears in their constant rivalry with Microsoft they almost lay the F Bomb on IE7. The F being Favicon, in this case.

 

For those that dom't know a Favicon is, it is a small image file, usually a bmp that is renamed something like favicon.ico and placed on your web server.  It appears in the brower bar for the website that you are viewing, it's a nice way of showing off a little bit about yourself and possibally making your site more memorable, it is uaually a 16px x16px or 32px x 32px image that doesn't really give you a lot of room to squeeze in a logo.

The following is the favicon i noticed for the first time on May 31st 2008 as seen in Mozilla's Firefox

Google:Google Favicon

However it does not show up in IE7 as seen below here.
Is Google Saying No F for You Microsoft?

Here is my favicon, the one for this site:  Favicon.  See it above in the browser tab?

Here are some other favicons from some other popular sites.

I wonder if politics over at Google may eventually make them change this?
