I'm a member of a number of Stack Exchange sites, including some beta sites, such as English or Photography. As a shortcut to visit these pages, I often visit the 'accounts' (Related Accounts) tab on my profile, to get to other Stack Exchange sites. However, I'm part of 3 different beta sites, but I can't tell the different beta site boxes apart. The three beta boxes have the same icon, whereas Stack Overflow, Super User, and Server Fault have their own icons, so I can tell which site I want to visit. I have to guess what site, OR remember my rep score, which is hard for beta sites, because I'm not that involved yet, so they have similar scores.

The point: can we work on the Beta icons? perhaps add a name to the beta boxes until they leave beta and receive their own icons?

We now do custom sketchy letter icons for each site, like so:

You can simply mouse over the gravatar to see the site in a tooltip.

As for the rest, see the duplicate question:
Please don't share the [B] favicon for all SE 2.0 sites

    I'm on a mobile browser a lot and can't see tooltips. I don't think they should be relied upon. Not the end of the world by any means though.
