WTF is a Favicon?

WTF is a Favicon?

Ever wondered how the likes of Yahoo! and Google have their own icons at their browser tabs and bookmarks? Wonder no more!

This little icons that one can barely see clearly are called “Favicons”! Other than making your site look more awesome, there’s really no other purpose with it. 😐

So, how do I get one for my own site?

Head over to this website which will help you generate a favicon instantly. You can either upload a really awesome image (like mine) or create one from scratch.

Then upload your newly created favicon to any image uploading website and paste the following code in between your site’s <head> </head> tags;

<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico” type=”image/x-icon” />

Viola! 😀
