Favicons are the small images that appear in your web browser when you visit a website.
Favicons appear in most modern browsers in the address bar and also next to bookmarks.
Favicons are easy to add to your own website, just copy the favicon.ico to the root (html) folder of your web server.
A Favicon is a 16x16 pixel image saved as an .ico file and named favicon.ico.
Favicon is short for 'favorites icon'. Favicons are also sometimes known as 'page icons'.
Adding a favicon to your website is as simple as placing the favicon.ico file in your website's root folder and adding the HTML tag <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" /> in the <head> section of your web pages.
