let us ponder this:

CSRF icon in your bookmarks to lure you.

XSS in google spreadsheet, chat, $service.

they meet fortuitously in a black hat tryst and your browser is a sock puppet (to goog) all the live long day...

to beat this dead horse one more time:
- the favicon behavior introduces some useful / interesting vectors not previously discussed
- the ability of CSRF is much less interesting than application of CSRF. maybe much ado about nothing, maybe materia to junction in the chamber of your sploit cannon...???
