We realize that it’s just an icon and meant to represent the calendar, but we thought that we could do one better and have the Humanity favicon auto-update with the actual calendar date to provide you with an icon that still represents a calendar, but a calendar that is a little more relevant.

We did a quick look and as far as we know we’re the only online scheduling application / Calendar application doing this. Let’s wait and see who copies..

Quick Note – This won’t work in IE as IE doesn’t support auto-updating Favicons. For everyone using a real modern web browser. Enjoy!
