The 300,000 Biggest Websites, Visualized With Their Icons: Gizmodo had an interesting post today about a chart/image that contains the favicons of the 300,000 most trafficked websites on the Interwebs. I thought the interactive version was interesting and found Weblog Tools Collection completely hidden right under the lower left corner of the Blogger icon. The traffic data came from Alexa and it was put together by Nmap.

    I’m on there! It’s back when I used an orange slice as my favicon.

    “The icon is at (17.460, 12.673) and is 16 × 16 pixels.”

    I’m on there, too! Kind of odd that two Patricks posted. ha! Here is my site info, and the site is Unfortunately, it’s not the favicon that I want, but whatever.

    Online lookup: The icon is at (26.480, 2.373) and is 416 × 416 pixels.

    I didn’t expect to see Gravatar so big. Nearly the same size as Twitter, and bigger than LinkedIn. Is that a glitch?

      Probably not. Based on Alexa, think how many times Gravatar’s site gets hit. There are probably millions per day as websites look up gravatars for the users on comment threads and other places.

    Having an adult blog certainly helps, but I confess I felt very stupid and very proud when I saw my blog’s favicon in the list :)
