Favorite Favicons of About.com Readers - Submit Your Favorite
As you can see from the above image, there are a lot of great looking favicons out there. The above image includes icons that were suggested by About.com readers. Some are ones that they created themselves, and others are more well-known corporate examples. One is for a site I built. These are all the tiny icons that show up in bookmarks and the URL bar or tab and I grabbed them as screen shots right from my browser (Chrome).
