What is a favicon?
A blue bird, a camera or the letter ‘ f ’ on blue! Cracking these popular icons isn’t a tough nut for anyone acquainted to the Internet. A favicon literally standing for ‘favorite icon’, is the small icon of your brand on the left side of the tab. It is an indispensable and essential item of your portfolio website as it the very first impression of your website.
Other than your browser window, a favicon also appears when you bookmark a page. Some web services and search engines also use favicons. Fundamentally, it works on the following two levels:
