A minor point, but the new favicon (coffee cup) has a white rather than transparent background - unlike the other sites:

alt text

Can we have a nice transparent background please?

  • i'll put out the transparent version today.

  • @Jin Thanks. Post an answer so I can accept it as well as tagging the question [status-complete].

  • I was thinking [status-by-design], but now that I've checked, it would look better on the tab.

The transparent versions of the favicons(parent site and Meta) will be in the next deployment.

  • If only I could get Chrome to refresh them when I wanted to, not when it decided it would ;)

  • @ChrisF It is on production now. You may have to manually refresh it, or wait when Chrome is in the mood to. sstatic.net/programmersmeta/img/favicon.ico
