Gamedev.net does it and I hate them for it. A few other sites do it to. Why am I hat''n? It''s because when you bookmark their page and then look them up under your Favorites folder, they actually have an ICON next to their link!!! How in the world did they do this? I can''t find any resources on this. Please help! At least point me in the right direction!!! Thank you! -Lewie [m80]

Looks like an Internet Explorer thing(as of 5), although Netscape 7 has adopted it. It doesn''t seem to be standard HTML.


It''s not in the html 4 standard (it''s Microsoft''s), however most mainstream browsers support it, and if they don''t it''s not going to do any harm (since the icon doesn''t affect navigation or display at all).

For instance here it is *fully* supported and even encouraged on their own home page by Mozilla:

Look up favicon on google, it should have the correct steps for making the icon. It HAS to be a specific size and must be converted to an icon, not a gif/jpg/png.

Try this site and look under: "What if I wish to make my Favicon on my own?"
