If you don’t know what a favicon is, it is the little icon for each website that you see in the address bar. For example, you might have noticed the little TB icon in the address bar for Techie-Buzz.
There are many tools available to create a favicon icon, with Favicon-Generator being one of the simplest and easiest ones. Using Favicon-Generator you can manually draw a Favicon or generate one by uploading an image. A number of standard drawing tools and a color palette is available if you decide to draw a favicon manually.
Once the favicon has been generated, you can download it to your computer.
Here’s a quick tip on how to use the favicon icon. Simply upload your favicon icon file to the root folder of your website and insert the following code between the <head> and </head> tags of your html file.
<link rel=iconhref=http://www.yoursite.com/favicon.icotype=image/x-icon/ >
<link rel=shortcut iconhref=http://www.yoursite.com/favicon.icotype=image/x-icon/ >
