4chan (AKA The Internet Hate Machine and Cuckchan) is a Futaba-style imageboard that is based on 2chan's software. Their mascot is Yotsuba_Koiwai; moot quote: "I want to be the little girl [meaning Yotsuba]."
In October 31, 2004, "/l/ (Lolikon) and /sm/ (Shotakon) are deleted due to threats of legal action. On November 5, moot registers not4chan.org [(currently a dead website: http://not4chan.org)] and moves /l/ and /sm/ there instead. On  November 15, /g/ (Guro) is deleted as well due to threats from YowCow to seize 4chan's donations account due to guro being against YowCow's ToS."
Throughout its history Edit
4chan X was once a web browser plugin to improve it.
All pages of threads that 404 have a favicon of a green 4 leaf clover with a "?" in the middle and a transparent_background. All NSFW boards have this favicon (one green 4 leaf clover), and all SFW boards have this favicon (one blue 4 leaf clover).
