While not directly related to SharePoint I think “favicon.ico” is a nice tool for giving any website a stronger brand. All modern browsers support this feature and keep the icon in your bookmarks to make the site easy to identify. I’ve tried creating these several ways so I’ll save you the trouble and say that Dynamic Drive has the best. http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/ Upload any common image file and it resizes, handles color palette , give you an instant download, and even a nice URL bar preview too.
How do I add this to my site? I want my bookmark icon to be cool!
- Add the “favicion.ico” to the root (i.e. http://www.spjeff.com/favicon.ico)
- Add HTML in the page <head> that says … <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
- Bookmark to your heart’s content
