Ever had problems with an old browser displaying your favicon? Try this method of selectively adding a favicon for Internet Explorer and all other browsers:
<link rel="icon" href="https://getbutterfly.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"> <!--[if IE]><link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /><![endif]-->
And don’t forget to place your favicon file in the root. Even if you don’t specify it, some browsers look by default for
favicon.ext files. Try to use
.png for your favicons. Try to simplify their colours before scaling down a logo or a symbol. It’s small (16*16) and too many details can harm its visibility.
*.ext = extension (could be
.gif with some older websites… and webmasters)
