When working on design jobs over the years I would always recommend the client use a custom Favicon on their website or blog.The problem then was not adding the favicon to the site, not even finding a Favicon to use but actually explaining exactly what a Favicon is !

I found an image like I have below explained it best.As you can see in the image a Favicon is the small image that appears beside the name of a website in your browser and also in your Bookmarks.The favicon is usually the same as the logo used by a website but it can be anything you want.
