[Favicons]Why use favicons?


Ever wondered why web programmers use favicon when designing a website?

Favicons may be little and very tiny things that are way out of people's eyes, but just try to search for a website without a favicon and you'll surely spot the difference. A favicon a very important from a branding's point of view.

What is a favicon?

The small image you see on almost every website, situated next to the website's title, is known as a favicon. Usually, it of size 16x16 pixels. See picture below for an example of a favicon.


What's the use of this small icon?

FavIcon - Short form for Favourite Icon.
A favicon is not mandatory, but if you care about user experience, you'll find it interesting to insert a favicon in your website. If you think from a visitor's point of view, upon seeing a favicon in a website, you get the impression that this website is the one you were searching for.

Are favicons important?

F*ck yeah, it is important!!!
Imagine facebook or youtube without their respective favicons, what logos would the world use to represent Facebook and Youtube! Favicons make life easier.
