Defining the Web: Favicons

Defining the Web: Favicons

A "favicon" (AKA favourites icon, website icon, shortcut icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon) is a 16 by 16 pixel square icon that is associated with a website.

Favicons are displayed in the address bar, browser tabs, and bookmark list of most web browsers.

Why should you add a favicon to your website?

A favicon is an extra opportunity add an interesting design element to your website, as well as an extra place to add your branding.

Examples

As you can likely see by taking a quick peek at the address bar, we at Mouth Media use the “m” from our logo as the favicon for our website.  Below are some other examples of memorable favicons:
