Get your own animated favicon

A favicon for your site makes a better overall impression. My blog's favicon is the icon with the white B on an orange background in the address bar, which stands for Blogger (the platform).

It's actually possible to use animated favicons as well.
Either you can make the icon roll from up to down or you can have a marquee horizontel scroll text. It took some time before it started work in IE though and I have had some troubles with version 6 as well, but it should work for version 7 anyway and of course for mozilla.

Great feature!
This site will show you how to do it and provide you with animated icons as well.

www.wohill.com is an example site that uses an animated favicon. Reload the page if you don't see it first, it runs again on each refresh.

I will be on vacation for the next three weeks by the way, so no more posts til then. See you soon!

It's indeed not to difficult. The trick is however, to create a favicon that does not irritate the user. Suppose you have 10 tabs, and they all animated in a flashy way. Therefore you should be careful.

I have actually launched a new favicon concept last week. I've created six animated favicons (different favicons for different tabs/ares), integrated with my (own) personal brand strategy. That implies that my face is shown, including attributes. On opening a page (or bookmarks) they are standing still, actually 80% of the time. After a little, sometimes funny, movie is played in the favicon.

Here's the site and a posting with lots of background info:

For the next step I consider let the favicon 'play' with the title or starting a sound. That would be great. But it should all be very subtle, as lots of animated favicons will soon irritate.

I'm interested in what you think!
