Why Google why...

So Chrome 21 recently came out and my greatest fear has been realized. They changed the icon for web pages with no favicon.

I originally thought this was just a bug when I was using the Chrome Beta build, and I reverted back to using the stable build just so that it would use the globe icon again. Now Chrome 21 has released and the new icon persists, and I've tried both the beta and canary builds and it's still there, so I'm starting to think this is intentional.

Why? I know I am nit-picking really hard here, but I loved the little globe icon. It was so much more appealing than this ugly blank paper icon.

And on that note has anyone been having some buggyness with window formatting in chrome 21? I feel like they might have pushed this build too soon...
