A nice tool/touch for websites is to update the favicon.ico – WordPress has a nice plugin called All in one Favicon that makes it easy to keep this maintained – I started using this after a WordPress update erased the favicon.ico that I put in place for the site via ftp, and realized there had to be an easier way then constantly overwriting the default favicon.ico.  The only thing it doesn’t do is insert the favicon link tag (<link rel=”shortcut icon” …> or <link rel=”icon” …>) which would be a little more html compliant, however I think its something I can live without.

Now I just have to edit the current favicon.ico to have a transparent background… but that’s low on my todo list…
