What are the Favicon

Originally they were an Icon of the Favorite pages Webs that Internet Explorer 6 kept.

At the moment one is an icon that can accompany to a webpage and it is in the bar of directions and/or the eyelash of the webpage according to the navigator who is used.

What formats support

All the navigators support to the format .ico with a size of 16x16 p­xels.

Some navigators are home to also use formats GIF and png


Png and GIF funionan with Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Operates. We have tried in a format of 64x64px, formats inferiors also work (advisable 16, 32 and 64px squared).

ICO, works in all the navigators (testeado with IE 8, 9 and 10), we have proven a format of 32x32px
