favicon

favorite icon

The name for a small icon used in Internet Explorer (version 5 and higher) to identify a favorite or a bookmark.

When users visit certain Web sites, you may see a "favicon" in the browser address bar next to the URL, and in your list of favorites next to the title of the Web site you've bookmarked. Favicons act as a branded icon as these small images are often modified versions of a company's logo. Most browsers support favicons, including IE 5/6+, Firefox 1+, Mozilla 1+, Netscape 7+, Opera 7+, Konqueror 3+, and Safari.
