It's funny, when Mathowie first announced "Ask MetaFilter" my first thought was "how's he going to make a Favicon of that name that fits with the oh-so-neat MF and MT for MetaFilter and MetaTalk." Still no solution to that little problem, I'm afraid :(

Gordon -

Funny how there are no photo realistic favicons in either your or Makiko's lists.

Gordon -

Oops meant to suggest a couple: www.lockergnome.com, www.mezzoblue.com, http://www.designbyfire.com/..

cripes there's loads!!

ffoeg -

I enjoy the kidrobot favicon (http://www.kidrobot.com) something about the robots man...gets me every time. Plus they have some impressive action figures over there which are worth a look.

Steven Garrity -

A few other suggestions:

John Cook -

I'm proud of my favicon, mainly because I have zero drawing talent.

Johnny Rukavina -

I really like favicons that appear in my bookmarks as a quick visual indicator of what's what. I'm wondering why sometimes they appear and sometimes they don't with no rhyme or reason. Does anybody know?

Daniel Burka -

Unless someone has a better answer Johnny, as far as I can tell the support for Favicons is entirely voodoo. Some browsers are better than others (Microsoft IE is particularly bad) but no browser I've used much supports them very well. It seems like a trivial thing not to just get right, but no one seems to do it well. Perhaps there is more complexity than meets the eye that some browser programmer can enlighten us with.

Steven Garrity -

Yeah, it does seem to be voodoo. There are a slew of bugs listed in the Mozilla/Firefox bug database - this bug listing covers them.

Johnny Rukavina -

Obviously breaking the favicon voodoo curse is a job for the President of the Internet. Perhaps you can add this to the docket for his next cabinet meeting.

Garrett -

It's funny, my favorite icon has been the same for 3 years, even though my website has changed designs at least 6 times.

Lots of good picks there, Daniel.

james -

I had no idea there were so many CC sites. My favicon is relatively unimaginative but no worse than Creative Commons or Cuban Council's, I suppose...

rur42 -

So yes, how do you capture favicons?

Daniel Burka -

rur42: I got the Favicons above just by taking a screenshot and saving them as GIFs. However, if you look in the source of the document to get the path to the Favicon and paste it into your address bar you can save the actual ICO file to your computer.

Nick Burka -

Another one I just came across that struck me as funny.

jennifer -

awesome post!

i'm terribly amused that http://www.ipct.be/ stole their favicon from http://www.sodaplay.com/ [as far as i know- the latter has been around for aaaaages and was actually one of the first sites i saw that used a favicon, which is why i remembered it.]

Daniel Burka -

Duly noted Jennifer. I hadn't recalled that was Sodaplay's favicon. The link has been updated now to the original source. Thanks.

mixin visuals -

sweet collection@! good stuff

Michael Hale -

I ended up here by digging through the referrer strings in my web server logs; and was pretty surprised to see my icon is one of your favs. I like the idea - keep building. If anyone needs help adding a favicon to their site here is a good link that's been sitting in my bookmarks: http://www.winterdrache.de/freeware/png2ico/favicon.html

jim -

Wow, love the way you've styled this form! BTw the link to hicksdesign points to the wrong url - go see for yourself. My own favicon is shamefully dire. I'm working on it for the next redesign. Good entry.

Ben -

What about Ryan Wickstrand's favicon at Goatee Style? Can't go wrong with goats.

And Jenn Rodriguez' icon at qrow.com. Simplicity is awesome.

OrneryBoy (a sw33t webcomic) has a cool icon too.

Another webcomic, Real Life has a nice blue pill favicon thing going on.

And finally, everyone's favourite Big White Guy, Randall van der Woning.

Ruben -

My personal favourites include

AD<br/>
Zeldman<br/>
gigaom (my number 1 icon)<br/>
Smudo<br/>
and Charlotte's Web.

I like your plane as well.

Excellent topic and great resource for design ideas!

I nominate the favicon at http://cssbeauty.com

Ben -

I found another great favicon, from the guys at Silver Orange.

Our school (The London School of Economics) has a great one: http://www.lse.ac.uk

Lex -

My little birdie and I are flattered to be included! Thank you.

JacoB -

Well... of course I like my favicon. Not only is it just mine but it is also me.
My site is in the midst of an identity crisis though...

Kevin Navia -

excellent! small images/branding 'do' start wonders!

Keith -

Seeing all of those pretty much forced me to up date my tired old, lame favicon. Thanks a lot! ;)

No, really, great post!

try the one at http://zerophase.net !

John -

The good list of icons

Twyst -

I'm rather proud of my favorite icon, as it's my first try, but it matches the site rather well. check it out at Ballistic Zen

Lord Chaos -

just wanted to add the favicon of www.heimkino.net but as i put it here, it was completely black.
any suggestions?

Awesome list with many nice favicons. Good work!

Mine is lame, too, but a great photo favicon is http://www.nicksfix.com/ - You can even sort of tell that it's Stevie Nicks. Others: http://www.airamericaradio.com

cokepoet -

ALSO! There are a couple of programs now for getting and keeping favicons from your favorite websites. The best one is FavIconizer.

Philippe Portes -

Es increíble lo que se puede lograr con algo de imaginación, muy buenos íconos.

cokepoet -

I also found a HUGE list of favicons, some good, some not so good.

http://favicons.basecomac.net/frame.html

It's in French, but just go through the categories on the left. If you need to visit each site in order to get the favicons (which are presented on the list as gifs), be aware that some of the links are bad, but that if you put in the address that is listed as the link, instead of trying to go to the links themselves, sometimes it works better. Like a billion favicons.

Valentin -

Once more with favicon: http://www.kraniopharyngeom.de

Rob Mientjes -

Displaying my own stuff:
http://www.zooibaai.nl » It's just my own, not the best though.
http://www.bleekselderij.nl » This one I like. I just captured some of the recognition marks of the site, and it works.

Marc -

Fascinating topic. Time and again I'm amazed how even complex graphics transform smoothly to much smaller resolutions.
For our university website we ventured to cram the official seal into the favicon format (cf. the original http://rzv075.rz.tu-bs.de/images/tulogo2.gif)

Kevin -

A couple of favicons that I like (sorry if some of them are already posted!):

Jamie Smith -

Fantastic selection of favicons. Well done!

Wish Internet Explorer would do a better job of remembering the favicons. Mine never seem to be stored in favorites for more than a few minutes or hours.

Poonam -

Very cool site. How can you make your own favicon? Maybe a dumb question - but I would like to customize for my own website with maybe just "NP" ...

Thanks!

Adam Bramwell -

The first really striking favicon was the simplicity of OnePointZero.

Its multiple binary meanings are the overall similarity to an on/off switch, and the fact that it is constructed from a 1 and a 0. Perfect!

German TV station 3sat (http://3sat.de/) has great and simple one. I like my own (http://hostinspace.com) too. But I change it quite frequently.

Paladin -

Your site inspired me to improve mine.

<img src="http://www.trepryor.com/favicon.ico" class="favicon">

I wonder whether to keep the "21" or remove it entirely. What do you think?

Daniel Burka -

Paladin: that's really nice. I'm not so big on the 21 as it seems awfully pixelly next to the face. Maybe it would work well if the numbers were darker. Might be nice just with the face. It certainly qualifies for the next round of additions to this collection once you're done refining it.

Joachim -

The favicon you have listed for http://www.scripting.com is actually the favicon (and corporate logo) for Userland: http://www.userland.com

Just an FYI.

I don't user Userland, but I would imagine that favicon may be a default favicon for any Radio Userland blogs???

Something different.......like Mardi Gras in Tampa, otherwise known as the Gasparilla Pirate Festival or just "Gasparilla" for short. The festival is very similar to Mardi Gras and takes place in February. The website I submitted specializes in making and selling throw beads for the krewes that participate in the parades. Beads make fine barter to negotiate favors from fairer lasses!

Hello

I made a favicon using my logo. I guess its quite difficult to put it in a favicon, so i made it just with microangelo and scaling it down.

I like the result, instead it still isn't that "clear" as other logos.

regs
Chris

christian -

Hello

Have a look at my site www.hellgold.com. I made the favicon simply by scaling my logo down to 16px². It is not quite that claer as others, but i like it anyway.

Commets (also directely via mail) welcome.

I think this is the beginning of the web's greatest favicon repository. But some of the submitted icons are definitely wishful thinking. Anyway, a good source of ideas.

Mark -

How about http://tfmc.org.uk/favicon.ico or maybe you would prefer http://365n.co.uk/favicon.ico which last time I checked was the sites name in morse code.

Ken Grondell -

Some of my personal all time favorites are cartoon icons like:

It would be nice if more browser support was out there for these it makes a nice branding touch point on a site.
