favicon design

Since its debut in 1999 with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, the favicon has expanded in scope thanks to adoption by modern browsers and operating systems. Although it was originally a tiny 16×16 pixel icon appearing in a browser’s address bar, favicons now also provide high-resolution visual assets for websites pinned to a mobile device’s home screen, a Windows 10 favorites tile, and much more.

In addition to being helpful to the user, these icons are just another level of polish designers and developers can apply to help a website stand out.
