Favicons And Your Website

What does a favicon do for your site?

Favicon Sample

A favicon (short for "favourites icon"), also known as a page icon or an urlicon, is the icon (small image) associated with a particular website or web-page. The web designer can create such an icon and make it available for the web browsers to use. Browsers that support favicons may display them in the browser's URL bar, next to the site's name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page's title in a tabbed document interface.
