A favicon is a small logo that appears in the address bar of the browser. Favicons appear next to the name of the website at the edge of open browser tabs or in the bookmarks list.
A Favicon gives your website a distinctive look and increases its recognition value. Your customers or visitors will be able to instantly recognize your site through a memorable favicon even if they have long bookmark lists.
In order to achieve the best possible recognition, the favicon should be based on your logo and coordinate with your website's color scheme.
