Why do I need to make a FavIcon for my site?
Originally, Internet Explorer only used favicon.ico for bookmarks (MSIE 6.0 and older versions). But now, newer versions of Internet Explorer (7.0 and above) and most other browsers(Ex. Mozilla Firefox) also display the favicon in the address bar on every visit, so this is becoming more important than before.
