What is a Favicon ico ?

  • Favicon, also called: favorite icon, shortcut icon, or link icon is the tiny image you see next to the url address in your browser url field, for example the blue "Z" you see with Zetz. It is also visible on your tabs that are open across the top of your page.
  • Shortcut Icons help users navigate through many different web pages they may have open simultaneously in their browser. Using the icon quickly identifies you.
  • Link Icons are only available on the newer browsers, those that support tabbed browsing, such as Firefox and the newest internet explorer.
  • Favicons can have the extension ico or .png. The image must be formatted at 16 x 16 pixels. A shortcut icon is included in your ZETZ simple/deluxe package.
