    You know the little icon that shows up on the browser tab and on your favorites list?

    What the hell is it? Kind of looks like a pine cone with a tail.

    Looks like a little movie reel to me.

    Not talking about the nice graphic. That is cool and pretty clear.

    You know how some sites have a little graphic on the browser tab? MSN has the butterfly. Google has the "G". MSNBC has the peacock.

    This site has something, but I can't make out what it is. Looks like a nutty crap with an umbilical cord coming out of it.

    It's a film reel. It gets squashed since the aspect of the image does not fit well into icon size, giving it a sort of pine-cone-ish, pile-of-crap, umbilical-cord-residue look.

    And again we see the importance of maintaining the Original Aspect Ratio (OAR).

    No it isn't squashed or out of perspective.

    It is a film reel standing on end with a little film reeled off of it. Nothing more nothing less.

    My IE version is stuck at 6 since I'm on Win 2000. Just the IE logo for me.
