What are Favicons?

You most likely already know this, but favicons, which is short for “favorite icons,” are actually small, iconic images that represent a website (that small thingy that you see in the browser tabs).

Favicon images are most commonly displayed in the address bar, in the list of bookmarks, and next to the site name of your favorite browser tab. We also have our own as you can see.

Favicons serve as a visual representation of the website, in most cases, the logo of specific brands are showcased back in the favicon image.
