It’s humorous that such a small change can provoke such consternation.
I’ve temporarily returned the old icon. At some point during the redesign, I can pretty much guarantee the icon will change again.
I am interested in hearing reasons why the change effects people enough that they would need to block it or go to the trouble of installing a Greasemonkey script to replace it. (Really, I am. I have been viewing the site with the icon and really don’t understand the issue.)
David, you should understand why the icon is changing. I am a little confused by your comment.
Because the ability to quickly identify a site in my tab bar is something I value. And for 10 years, this site has been a home plate.
The monkey means nothing, and is not even visibly a monkey. It was a terrible icon on artistic merit, irrespective of the fact that it made it hard for me to identify the site in my bookmarks and tab bar.
