Why did Trello change colour of favicons to blue?

Until recently, if you had multiple boards open in different tabs, the colour of the favicon reflected which board it was.  Now they are all standard blue, making clicking on the wrong tab//board inevitable. What's the benefit of them all being the same vs. the loss of differentiation?

Hi Ryan! I'm from the Trello Support team.

Daniela raised this as a ticket with us in our support portal and we've looked into it. 

If you're using Safari, this browser does not support the ability to have dynamic favicon.

If you're using Edge as Daniela is, we've identified this as a bug, and I have raised this with our team. They'll look into it on our end. 

For Chrome and Firefox, it seems that dynamic favicon are still working fine! If you're having issues seeing the favicon on these browsers, can you swing by Trello Support and drop us a ticket? We'll be able to investigate from there.

Hope this answers your question!


Thanks for this, Alex! Indeed I now see that its' working fine when I use Firefox, but not Edge. Unfortunately, I use Edge for work. Hopefully the bug is fixed - much appreciated!

Hi Ryan - just thought I'd let you know our dev team deployed a fix for this over the weekend, and dynamic favicon works on Edge again! Let me know if it's working for you. 

Hi Alex,


I just refreshed and it looks from over here. Thank you so much to the team there! Amazing.

I agree, this was not a good change or improvement. It's confusing and annoying for people  using multiple boards. Would love to see it turn back to colours.
