Interesting, here's what I see from Firefox (desktop):

The one on the left is duckduckgo.com, on the right is duck.co. What URL are you on when you see that favicon? I wonder (speculating) if that's an old favicon that hasn't been overwritten by the new one?

OK, this is weird, because (as you can see above) I was getting the nice square favicon in my duckduckgo.com tab, but now it's changed and looks like yours. Strange days indeed.

Yeh, I'd agree with that, looks a lot cleaner. Jeesh, I sure wish I knew how I had gotten that one and why it's gone now!

So, I just jumped onto FF on my old XP box, look what I got:

This is most likely because your browser had a cached version of the icon, for a specific time period, until it re-downloaded it.

To begin with my browser (also, Firefox) loaded the new favicon only in the tab, but not in the bookmarks. But, that has been updated now as well. : )

For the fun of it I checked the icons.duckduckgo.com-"service" to see if that was updated, but it wasn't for a couple days. It doesn't seem to be updated, yet. : P

Right
I just built a fresh XP VPC, went to ddg.gg and it has the new (round) favicon.

Yes, you are right -- we updated our favicon to more match the logo (circle with dax in the middle).

Sorry but it's ugly... I vote for reverting it back.

I don't find it ugly. I like it better.

I don't think it's ugly, indeed the square one does look better, and show your duck in a more better few. I'd perfer the square one as well, but the new one isn't ugly. I just get sad because I can't see my duck that good. xD

I see the round DuckDuckGo favicon. I'd prefer to see the square favicon instead.
