So you think you’ve “seen” every favicon out there? If you don’t feel like creating a favicon (the little icon that shows up in many browsers when your site is bookmarked), then you can take the easy route and go transparent. The neat thing about this one is that it blanks out the default Microsoft icon in Internet Explorer. It might have the effect of getting someone’s attention or at at the very least serving as a conversation piece.
If you’re not feeling creative and just want to block out the default icon from Internet Explorer as above, download and use this transparent icon as a favicon on your web site. The icons are free to download, modify, and use as content on your web sites. This transparent favicon file is in .ico format. Design your own favicon with freeware graphics programs like IconEdit32 and IrfanView.
