    The Yahoo favicon

    Recently I have seen a lot of sites with the Yahoo favicon?
    1. Does that mean that it is a site owned by Yahoo or is it related or stolen?
    2. Is del.icio.us and Flicker or Digg owned by Yahoo?
    Here is one example:

    atgsunglasses dot com

    I have seen others, at least three different I think.

    Hi kgun.

    Both Digg and Del.icio.us are showing their own favicons to me. Do you have Yahoo as your default Search Engine. Are they hijacking you?

    Now working more silently than Google. No wonder why they declined Microsoft's offer.

    By default all Yahoo Stores like atgsunglasses dot com display the Y! favicon. Some stores decide to override it with their own though.

    Del.icio.us, Digg and Flicker display their own favicon's for me... not sure why they are appearing as Y! to you.

    Again my bolding. That is an unanswered queston. They do not show the Yahoo favicon.

    del.icio.us is owned by Yahoo: Del.icio.us - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Flicker: Yahoo actually does acquire Flickr Flickr Blog, Flickr - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Digg is still owned by it's founders as far as I know.

    That was what I thought, but was unsure about Digg. Thank you.
