The blue area around the favicon of the graph – not sure what it’s called, most sites just show the favicon, on the default browser skin (usually gray) without the wording or custom color.

When you’ve got the blue bar there, it means you’re logged into a https site. The S, as we’re all aware of, stands for secure. This is why site’s like, Google have the blue bar there. If I’m not mistaking, PayPal has something similar. Depending on which browser you’re using.

So to keep it short, it stands for security. It’s only a type of mark to let you know you’re on a secure site. ;)

Aah, thanks SevoDesign and PatrikL, thought it might have something to do with that – I’ve only seen it on sites once logged in.
