Hello,
Yeah, my query was on phones. The background isnt transparent in Android 4.2.2 standard browser.


Does it work in Chrome? I'm pretty sure Google isn't updating that browser much.

Edit: I don't even have it on my phone, the only remnant of it is a single page HTML viewer that doesn't work properly, and can only be invoked by a glitch.

It's fine in Chrome but not in Browser. Didn't know anyone still used that though...

riahc3, your favicon is appearing green in both IE and Firefox on my Windows 7 machine. It always has! Haven't tested in Chrome yet.

 

I'm guessing there's some conversions that happen when uploading favicon files to Neowin.

Either its being worked on or it is blatantly being worked on.

We are not ignoring it. It's not all that easy to make sure our logo shows up correctly on every device and every piece of software. It annoys me as much as anyone else

I find it starts off as the crappy light icon on windows chrome however after a few hours is changes to the darker icon.

 

On Android the front page has the light icon and if i remember correctly as soon as i enter the forums i get the dark icon.

Better tan "ignoring", I ment that its been put at the bottom of the todo list. :)

Its more of a eye distraction rather than a must fix.

Hello,
 
Could someone rename this topic "Favicon issues" since now its a desktop issue as well.

This issue may possibly be fixed on my Windows PC now, not tried Android yet.
