Icons of the Web – An Infographic

27 Aug

So this is an infographic of the 288,945 most popular sites on the internet. It was created by using a web script to scrape the favicons of the world’s most popular websites, as ranked by Alexa. Now that all sounds a little complicated – but basically, those favicons were scaled according to the amount of traffic that site gets and then depicted in the infographic above. The largest icon is, of course, Google, which is 11,936 square pixels. The whole diagram is 37,440 square pixels. You can learn more about the method from the peeps at Nmap.
