Thanks for the feedback.

i tried
in Safari the favicon also isn't moving, just like in Chrome and Opera.
in IE i only get the default IE favicon
it seems FF is the only one to show animated favicons.

IMO this feature is an annoyance but i am tagging this for further review...

Firefox' favicons are animated as an accidental side-effect of writing the whole UI in 

Implementing this in Chrome is surprisingly difficult (we've discussed it before) and 
it's more annoying than useful anyway.
