A lot of us are using the favicon in our apps as it is a quite convenient size.

It seems that IE does not like the stackapps favicon palette and renders the background black.

While I do cache the icons on my server and could fix it and not update it, it might be nice if this could be fixed upstream.

This has been fixed.

Mind, anyone who already has the favicon cached naturally won't see it until it falls out of their local cache.

  • @George - more concerned about browsers than [app]s. favicon is an unusual beast, and we can't explicit cache break it. Sep 20, 2010 at 4:48
