    I didn't mean it in a harsh way, I meant it in a genuine "i'm surprised you didn't google it" way.. it would've gotten you your answer a lot quicker. :dunno:

    First few results has a tool like above as well (and which is the one I use)..

    Nearly all modern browsers will automatically look in the root directory for favicon.ico
