@dominickng @kennethrohde @Not_Woods @AaronGustafson In all seriousness, this (fav)icon fever needs to stop. Let’s have the browser do the grudge work. We invented vector graphics for a reason…

@AaronGustafson @kennethrohde I’ll try to come up with a holistic proposal these days hopefully. If done consequently, there’s indeed more than just the icons we might want to make theme-aware, or—maybe more general—`media`-aware.

tomayac 🎉 Chrome now accepts SVG favicons (crbug.com/294179#c73), which means you can style your icon with inline `prefers-color-scheme` and you’ll get two icons for the price of one!

Demo: 🌒 dark-mode-favicon.glitch.me ☀️

@jaffathecake @mathias Also just linked to it in blog.tomayac.com/2019/09/21/pre…, since I have stolen your SVG almost literally… :-) Thanks for running these experiments already in 2016.

Full credits to @mathias (via bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/iss…), who independently has created almost the same demo as me (numerous-sulfur.glitch.me) that I didn’t check, but whose link to @jaffathecake’s post jakearchibald.com/2016/svg-media… I followed.
He filed follow-up crbug.com/1026539

@mathias @NathanG @jaffathecake Yeah, also a manual reload is required; the favicon doesn’t automatically refresh on color scheme change as the rest of the page does.
