Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This userscript is obsolete now that the icon has been changed to something entirely more sensible. It is preserved below for posterity, and also so I can keep the 60 rep you all graciously gave me for it.

About

When Meta Stack Exchange finally split from Meta Stack Overflow (yay!), the shiny new Meta's icon was revealed to be the same as the icon used for stackexchange.com. This makes it a bit hard to tell which tabs are on which site by scanning the tab list. (It also made my Firefox pinned tabs (SE, MSE, this site, MSE chat, SE chat) very homogenous.)

This userscript exists solely to give Meta SE a more fetching greyscale icon to make it more different.

Nice. Here's a version that also changes the icons in the top bar. (Ps. Have you already proposed officially changing the icon on MSE?) –  Ilmari Karonen Apr 19 at 1:45
    
@IlmariKaronen That would require me to think before coding. :P –  michaelb958 Apr 19 at 4:13
