Google’s New Favicon Inspired from AVG ?

Today, I was surprised to see the new favicon on google and its related sites. I knew someone would have surely made an entry on Devil’s workshop and Deepak did mentioned it here. But the new image was so familiar to me and later I found out it was like that of AVG antivirus logo. Actually, Google was inspired for the new logo by a design submitted by André Resende, a computer science undergraduate student at the University of Campinas in Brazil. But I think this what would have actually happened.

AVG favicon + 90 degree turn + Old favicon + Some smudging -> New favicon


Sorry, I’m very poor at photoshop :)
