People seem to hate it actually. I have received complaints (requests for
removal, desire for a plug-ins that disables such motion). Its effect
offline (when steering away) can be seen among the bookmarks, which is
somewhat of a nuisance to most. I simply got used to it, but others have not
because it stands out too strongly.
Speaking of favicons, last week I realised that Firefox 1.5 makes a
favicon-like preview/thumbnail for pages that are purely images. Same for
videos one day? Sounds on MouseHover?

Thanks for the compliment. *smile* I lost confidence in the odd design of
that page -- a design that goes back to late 2004.
FWIW, I put up instructions for animated favicons at
http://schestowitz.com/Weblog/archives/2005/12/05/animated-favicons/ . I
worked on this as soon as I had come across the first animated favicon, so I
might be among the first few thousands(?). It's rare and unusual, so it
leaves a mental mark, I think.
