What is a favicon?

A favicon, also known as a shortcut/website-/tab-/URL-/or bookmark-icon, is a file containing one or more small icons that are associated with a specific website or web page.

Favicons are displayed in web browsers next to:

  • the URL in the address bar
  • the website’s name in bookmark lists
  • the page title in browsers with tabbed browsing

A favicon has a subtle, yet important role in your website branding because it is a quick indicator of your unique site, and ensures that visitors recognise it.
