New User Interface Customizations and the Beloved Favicon
This week, Twitter has been buzzing with the news that Basecamp – poster child for the cult of ‘opinionated software’ has released...
The ability to upload custom Favicons.
Yep. The little icon that shows up in your browser bar when you load a website.
Apparently, Basecamp users have been asking for this feature for ages, so no doubt they’ll be pleased.
Actually, one of our users still has a Basecamp account as well, and he was quite impressed. Impressed enough to email us over the weekend asking if we could do the same. We did consider sending him a long email response to explain that uploadable Favicons have no functional benefit, and following that up with a couple of blog posts explaining the complete superiority of our authentic and original BlueCamroo Favicon.
And then we thought: "What the heck. He’s a customer. He pays our wages. Why not?"
And then we thought: "You know, if people want to change the Favicon, perhaps they’d like to change the colour scheme, and maybe customize their log-in page too."
So, today we would like to announce the release of custom Favicons, themes, and login page customization. We hope you like them.
And we’re sorry it’s taken us a whole week.
