Create Your Own Favicon

Have you noticed how some websites have a picture in the tab in your browser? This picture is called a favicon. Like most other words that began on the internet, this is two words smashed together – favourite and icon

It’s not black magic, it’s actually quite easy to create your own favicon.

Just put this code into the <head> of your web page. As long it appears somewhere between the opening and closing head tags it should work. Oh yes, the href attribute must point to the actual picture you want.

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="http://example.com/myicon.png">

This favicon will only work if the image file is a PNG, GIF or ICO file.
