.....or has it been there a while?

In the last couple of days, I've noticed that the tab for GR has a white capital G in a purple square.

Is this an update, our firefox browser or been there for ages?

No,I noticed it yesterday.
Why do they keep changing things?

Glad wasn't me being unobservant :-)

It's quite handy to spot when you have a number of tabs open.

I think its down to which browser you use, as to what icon you get on the tabs not GR`s doing. :-)

Can't remember having an update for over a week, but what ever or who ever has caused the G, its rather good ;-)

Hiya DET, sounds similar to the one I get for facebook but with a white f :-)

it is created by the website coder/designer and is called a favicon.
It is included in the coding for the webpage

Is that what the G. stands for?

;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 2 Feb 2013 18:11

I have seven tabs open at the moment,FB,GR,.Ancestry, FMP and peopletracer

All have an icon except GR and FMP they have the Internet Explorer that what you mean

Yes, except that using firefox, this genes tab has the white G in a purple box as described.

The only other one I've open at the moment is the NZ white pages - that looks like a (black) tyranasaurus rex on a yellow square - its probably supposed to be a walking man :-D

Are you jealous? ;-) :-D
