Use Favicon.cc to create favicons as easily as drawing in a paint program. It works in your browser, so you don’t have to download anything. Once you’ve finished drawing, you can download the favicon to your PC, or share it with others. A favicon is a tiny icon that is associated with a web site or page, and you usually see it next to the page title on the browser tab, or in the list of bookmarks.
What’s great about Favicon.cc is that you can preview how your favorite icon will look in the browser, in its actual size, while you work. Favicon.cc updates the favorite icon of the editor page, in real-time, so you can view it in your current browser tab, and see how it compares to the favorite icons of other opened sites:
And it’s child’s play to create favicons with this tool: simply choose a color, and click on the squares to paint the icon pixel by pixel (remember pixel art?). You get a color picker, an alpha transparency slider, and a multiple frame editor to create favicons that are animated.
Of course, you don’t have to create icons from scratch: you can also import a JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, ICO, or CUR image, and convert it to a favicon.
Once your favicon is ready, you can easily download the favicon.ico file to your computer, so you can upload it to your web site directory. You can also publish it under an open license, for others to see and use.
You can also register for free as a member, to manage the icons you have created, and rate icons created by other users.
