Was probably a little too excited to see Google Calendar update its favicon to a neat blue calendar with the number 31 on it.
For a second I thought it was the 31st of the month, discovered it wasn’t. I then assumed I might have 31 events today, turned out that wasn’t the case either…
So all it is is a new Favicon with the number 31 on it. Where’s the innovation Google? Surely if you can have an unread count in Gmail’s favicon, it’s possible to have a dynamic date on GCal’s no?
Update: As a commenter rightly points out, many older browsers cache the favicon from a website making it technically impossible to update on a daily basis, so 31st every day it is.
