Slashdot, DistroWatch, Fark and just about every news outlet and website worth its salt (no offense) has the little logo that pops into the address bar and marks it in your bookmarks. MPC is the only one in my Firefox bookmarks bar that still just has the poor little blank-page icon. A little icon would look more professional as well in my opinion.

Shoot. Even the Moble PC forum had a bookmark logo!

Oh well, it looks cool, and is more easily identifiable among the sea of bookmarks.

I wouldn't mind one because I use the dock in FF and it would be easier to see

I made one ages ago, then forgot to put the link for it into the header files.

I'll add it to the list.

Yes. It's a Firefox bug - sometimes when I'm on Fark or CNN or something for a while then click over to MPC the logo changes to that website's.

It should start popping up for Firefox and Safari users momentarily.

IE looks for the favicon.ico file whether it's there or not. The other, better behaved, browsers only look if you tell it it's there.

What do you expect for 5 minutes work. Do better and I'll change it.

I tried that, but you couldn't tell what it was.

Like I said, that was five minutes worth of work. If someone comes up with something that I judge is better, I'll use it instead.

It's easy to say "The icon's weak". Step up whiners :P

favicons are pretty hard -- it's so little space to work with.

Ack, the one that's up there now is terrible. I must have upped the wrong one.

The right one will be there in about 5 minutes, when the staging server refreshes.
