Did You Notice Google's New Favicon?

I noticed it the new Favicon, too, and I agree with pretty much everybody here: I don't like it. I thought there was something wrong with my browser when the Google icon on those tabs for various searches and services is now a small "g" (versus the capital "G" before). I can barely see the small letter while the capital letter was easy to spot and we all know it was Google's icon. What moron in their marketing department thought changing their obvious branded "G" to this was a good idea?

Google's official word is here (which doesn't make a whole lot of sense, really), but there is a Greasemonkey script to get the old one back.

I just wonder if there are bigger plans in the works -- some sort of new interface, perhaps -- that they're trying to start getting the new branding out there. Begin forming your conspiracy theories now...
