Introduction

I stumbled upon this while posting to another thread and didn't realize this option was available. It appears that it only works in Firefox, but here's an example of an animated Favicon (I.E. viewers will get a different non-animated icon - you have to view it in Firefox to see)

Instructions

Apparently it's easy enough to do. Make an animated favicon the same dimensions as a normal favicon. Then drop it in your root folder (or wherever you like) and then code it similar to the following:

Code: [ Select ]
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.mywebsite.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="icon" href="http://www.mywebsite.com/favicon.gif" type="image/gif">
  1. <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.mywebsite.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
  2. <link rel="icon" href="http://www.mywebsite.com/favicon.gif" type="image/gif">


And that, basically is a wrap.
