Hello all,

Yesterday I noticed that i have 18 tabs opened in my browser, from it 4 of Ubuntu-IL on the Localhost, 2 of Ubuntu-IL on www, 2 of Ubuntu-IL forums, one of PlayDeb project and 2 of because it was so many tabs, i saw only the favicons of the sites. when I tried to find a  a page related to Ubuntu, i just saw tones of Ubuntu icons, and started to browse between the tabs.

“God damn it! why can’t they just use their own symbols?!”

well, because I don’t like to keep the things just as they are, I jumped into the #GetDeb channel on (actually I tried #PlayDeb first, but when I saw it’s not in use I’ve registered it and redirected it to #GetDeb), and asked them to change the icon of PlayDeb to their own icon, they asked me to make an favicon of it, and so I did, and from now and on PlayDeb uses PlayDeb’s Icon as the Favicon – Congratz 😀

As it seems for now, I’m going to change Ubuntu-IL’s favicon too, I’ll change it to an image that combines Ubuntu symbol and the star of david, which is the symbol of the jews all over the world, and used on Israel flag (The image was made by Yaron Shahrbani).

And I use this stage, dear readers, if you have any influence in any project that related to Ubuntu and uses Ubuntu icon as a favicon, PLEASE make the project change the icon! I believe that there are many creative minds out their that can think of their own icon.

Thanks a lot!



  1. Alan: Sounds like a good idea 😀
    Nadav: no, I’ made the favicon, the little icon next to the site’s address


  2. Great idea, I hope that other teams start switching their favicons to their own instead of solely using the Ubuntu logo.

    Sounds like your browser is broken.
