Blogger Favorite Icons (Favicons)

Misinterpreted.org has a great post on How To Create Your Own Favorite Icon (favicon.ico). It shows how to make your own image that appears next to your URL in the address bar, and next to the title of your page in browser tabs.

Random Waves of Insight has a favorite icon that right now is a gold ring. You can call an icon remotely. With a Blogger blog, you go into your Template, click "Edit HTML," and between <head> and </head>, add this:

<link href='http://www.SOMESITE.com/FILEFOLDER/favicon.ico' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon'/>

where SOMESITE is a web site where you've uploaded your icon into the FILEFOLDER.

Some web sites even use GIFs now to make their icons animated!
