I was just wondering if anyone has had any luck with the icon up in address bar for web sites? I know how to get up there with the <link> in the head but has anyone found something that is free to use to create an icon file to put up there? i can't seem to find anything?

I've seen these small icons next to the address bar in my browser. How is this done?
It's called a 'favicon'. Just save any image as a .ico file called favicon.ico, this file needs to be an RGB 72dpi image measuring 16 pixels square. There are loads of little apps that you can get that will save .ico, or if you use Photoshop you can download this that will enable you to save .ico files from there. (Thanks to Ricky55 for this answer.)

Search favicon posts in this forum because either Ricky55 or Coloeagle (sorry lads, can't remember who) gave a great generator link.
