    It's an image called favicon.ico that's located in the directory of the page(s) you want it to be the icon for.

    Here are some great sites for making your own favicon!

    Favicons are neat. I made one for my family site.

    yes useless. Because once you restart your computer, the favicon never returns to your favorite list. Lol not on mine anyway

    favicons are stored in temporary internet files like most other internet files and are cleared out in time or manually with the rest of the "junk"

    It doesn't show even after the page is done loading? Does it show other sites' favicons (such as this one's)?

    yeah, it shows about half of all the sites with favicons, and most disappear quickly thereafter. the vBulletin sites that i bookmark all keep their icons for some reason.

    whatever, when all else fails, I'll claim its a virus, and spend another 50$ on a subscription to norton...

    Here's a really useless, but interesting little prog regarding favicons. I have used it, and it actually works. You start it up, it goes through your entire favorites list and tries to locate favicons from the bookmarked URL's. Pretty neat, if you like Favicons. Try it, doesn't cost anything...

    Regarding Anti-virus software. For God's sake, DON'T use Norton!!!!!!!

    It's a relatively little known fact... AVG Anti Virus is a FREE, non-trial AV software. This version is free forever, even updates. Don't ask me why, I have no idea. I've used it for years. It's really, truly, honestly free. No spam, no invasive crap, no spyware, nothing. Free, free, free. It's MUCH less invasive than Norton, works as well, and a new update comes out at least every Monday. Enjoy.

    reliable

    you really find it reliable chris? i know i get bombarded with crud as im online 8 days a week and norton sure does a good job catching the crappers who feel they should make MS more money by trying to disrupt them. god do something more useful than just keeping the update people at MS employed.

    Yes, AVG ROCKS! I truly believe in it, and yes, it does a fine job and detects everything that Norton or McAfee does. I've never had an issue with AVG as far as it finding virii.

    Get a Mac!

    Just kidding Get whatever you want. But if you get windows, get a virus app too.
