What is Favicon? How to change the favicon for your blog?


A favicon (short for "favorites icon"), also known as a page icon or an urlicon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage.

A web designer can create such an icon, and many recent web browsers can then make use of them.

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.

Please upload your .ico file in any photo sharing sites like photobucket etc., The width x height is 16x16 for the .ico file (that is my choice)

How to change the favicon for your blog?
