Marissa Mayer wrote a blogpost about it on the Official Google Blog. There are several sets of icons that were designed and up to now there is no final solution. If someone has a nice idea for a favicon, there is a site to submit it to Google.
Today Opera released Opera 9.5. More about the the new version can be read in an article on Dev Opera. The official date for the launch of Firefox 3.0 is June 17th. This will also be the day to set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours.

For some time now Google Reader is the feed reader of my choice. Google Reader now has some new features. A new bookmarklet lets me share any site, not only sites from feeds that I am subscribed to. Notes can be attached to shared items or any blog entries. Even notes alone can be shared with others.
