In Chrome on Max osx, at least, the favicon in the tab title kind of disappears when having a dark main background on the window. Can this be enhanced somehow?

Top part of chrome window with code review tabs

The image shows top part of window with two tabs on the main page of Code Review, and one tab from Stack Overflow. The icon from Stack Overflow is much more prominent, than the one from Code Review.

Can this be fixed somewhat easy?

    \$\begingroup\$ The CR Meta favicon has a similar (and possibly a bit more pronounced) problem: i.sstatic.net/so1YO.png \$\endgroup\$

This is still an issue on the main site, but the meta site is slightly better:

Code Review Main site: enter image description here
