Creating a favicon for your website

A Favicon (short for favourites icon) is a small graphic you can associate with your website for display in web browsers. The icon appears beside the URL in a browsers address bar, as well as next to the site’s name in a bookmarks/favourites list & with the site’s title in a tab. For example Facebook has the familiar blue F icon, whilst Google uses a colourful G icon.
