    Favicon is the icon which is displayed at the link of your site. In Firefox, you will see a globe icon as favicon of your site which can be replaced to your desired favicon.

    The favicon is the small image that appears in your "favorites" or bookmarks (therefore, the name, short for Favorite icon) and in most toolbars.

    There is an excellent article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

    It is an icon file and is found in the root directory of your web. favicon.ico is an icon that you would like to be associated with your website when users bookmark it(IE5 only). This will replace the default icon that is usually associated with your bookmarks. This is an optional file and if you run the new security fix issued by microsoft, it will disable this feature (at least this is what happened to me when I installed it).
