This is a tiny script replacing identicons on SE sites with face-like avatars provided by Gravatar. Available as a Chrome extension, and as a source file below.

var i, t, images = document.getElementsByTagName('img');
for (i=0; i<images.length; i++) {
  t = images[i].src;
  if (t.indexOf('identicon')!=-1) {
    images[i].src = t.replace(/identicon/,'wavatar');
  }
}

(Should be matched to all SE sites of interest to the user.)
