    Any idea why my favicon on chrome seemed to be requested everytime I load a new page. As per gif below.

    That is behaviour internal to the browser.

    It just indicates the page is loading.

    When the page is loading, it is rotating clockwise. But after the page loaded, it rotates anticlockwise. Other websites doesn't seem to have such behavior. Only mine did.

    Maybe I'm just thinking too much about it.
    Thanks anyway.

    It is an AJAX (in page request) action that is still working (it can be observed here if you edit your post -- just briefly).

    In fact, the two different directions actually indicate different things. Anti-clockwise is 'request sent, waiting for any kind of response' and clockwise is 'request received by server, sending response' (and the browser is downloading it/processing it, extended periods may mean it is doing all kinds of third-party lookups and stuff)

    The brief anti-clockwise here is no different, there's some additional request being triggered after the main page has loaded. Facebook resources for example, though there can be others.
