about favicons

Every now and again we showcase beautiful favicons, tiny pieces of art you’ll find in your browser’s address bar or when searching through your bookmarks. Favicons are important because they provide visual indicators to visitors and help them easily associate content with a bookmark in their browser. Besides that, favicons are just nice to look at, and there are way too many websites that don’t make use of them. We want to change that, which is why we are presenting the 8th episode of our favicons series — for a change, a small article with very small images and a quick loading time.

We’ve written enough about favicons in the past. If you’d like to find out more about them, feel free to look at our previous posts:

Notice that these favicons were chosen not simply for their beauty; it’s been important to us that the favicon fits perfectly with the overall website design. Pay close attention to the small details of the design. All favicons are linked, of course, to the websites where they are used (if they still exist) — click on them to get more insight into how favicon design relates to overall layout design. The favicons are listed in no particular order.
