Is it a subversive Netscape campaign?

NS logo icon appearing on a site near you!

Has anyone else noticed more & more web sites are using the Netscape "over-the-hill N" logo as their favicon.ico? (Of course, you have to be using IE & bookmark sites to see the icon... Or shoot in the dark and just visit mysite.com/favicon.ico)

Like my tastes, a diverse range of sites are either using the NS logo or have switched to it. Most amusing is the number of US government sites using the NS icon... (Examples include state.gov, epa.gov and my favourite - cia.gov)

Do we get a bonus if we join the campaign? A free copy of the Mozilla source if we make the switch? ;)

Ye i noticed that too, first i thought it was because of Aol&TimeWarner, but as you say cia.gov and other site which doesn't have any relationship with Netscape.

Could be a new lucrative branding campaign.
