Script Summary: Replaces the Google favicon with one designed by Tyler Sticka. Tweak of "Google's Old Favicon" script.

Version: 1.1

Script homepage

I find Google's new redesign abrasive and distracting, due to the juxtaposition of the complimentary red and green hues on the right-hand side. I thought I'd create an icon retaining the composition, but replacing the colors with that of Google's attractive iPhone app icon.

Before and after:

This is structurally identical to the excellent Google's Old Icon script.

Version 1.1 adds Google Analytics to the default exclude list.
