Definition: Favicon

Yesterday I mentioned a favicon was one thing you could use to customize your WordPress template. But what exactly is it?

Favicon is actually short for Favourites Icon – meaning the icon/picture you see next to a bookmark in your bookmarks bar or menu. It is also usually displayed in the address bar and on the tab.

Favicons are usually 16x16px (pretty small) so any design has to be quite simple. I would recommend that you change your site Favicon to something other than the default (as this is usually the logo of your blog platform – why promote them when you could promote yourself?).

What “blogging terms” would you like to be defined?
