Revert Back To Old Google Favicon

You all must have noticed the new Google favicon image, which is now a simple blue-coloured g, instead of the colourful-boxed G. Some people are liking it and have appreciated the new favicon, but on the other side there are people, like me, who think that the old favicon was better. I really don’t like this favicon, and have found a way by which you can revert back to the old one.

Revert Google Favicon

It’s a very simple Greasemonkey script (What is this?) which changes the new Google favicon with the old favicon image.


The requirements are simple. You need to have Firefox (download here) with Greasemonkey script installed. Or you can alternatively use some add-on for Internet Explorer to run Greasemonkey scripts.

How To Revert Back To Old Google Favicon

  • Download and install this Greasemonkey script.
  • Enable it and enjoy!

You might need to refresh your already opened Google pages after installing this script for the changes to take effect.
