Do you use a favicon on your Web sites?
Many Web sites have a favicon, many do not. A recent thread noted that the GPWA Web site does not have one, and we've started working on one as a result. But that got me thinking. How many webmasters use favicons on their Web sites and how many do not? Besides voting in the poll be sure to share your thoughts about them. And for those of you who do use them, share with us what software you used to create them, or if you paid someone else to make them for you. View poll
