I got linked to an interesting article on Typophile.com today and thought it’d be good to share
In the article Miha shows off his use of ninja skills and false color to improve the readability of favicons, if you’re into design or typography you can check out the full article at: http://typophile.com/node/60577
If you don’t know what a favicon is, simply put it’s the little icon that appears when you visit certain websites to the left of your browsers address bar. If your website has a favicon and its bookmarked, your favicon will also appear in the users bookmarks – quickly identifying the bookmark as your website & helping it to stand out..
Creating your own favicon is really simple.
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />– this isn’t strictly necessary but it helps nudge some of the older browsers.
Tip: Convention is to keep your favicon.ico in the root of your site. But if you really want to call your favicon something else, or store it in a different folder on your website eg: /library/images/my_favicon.ico – just change the path & file name in html .
