How to Add this Favicon to Your Website
There are several steps to add your new favicon to your website. Depending on how thorough you want to be you have several options. At the very least Free Favicon recommends you do the Website Favicon step and the Apple iOS devices and Google Android Devices step. That will cover the majority of your users and provide them with your favicon/icon no matter what device they are on. If you want to be complete you can do add all the additional sizes of icons as well.
- Download favicon zip package.
- Extract the favicon.ico file and the other files on your computer.
- Upload the favicon.ico file into your web server directory.
- If you do not place the favicon.ico file in the root public directory on your web server you can add this HTML code between the <head> </head> tags of the page.
<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/path/to/favicon.ico">
Apple iOS devices and Google Android Devices
If you would also like to install a touch icon for Apple iOS devices and Google Android devices you can also use the 152 pixel png file that is included. You will need to place the following HTML code in between the <head> </head> tags.
<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="/path/to/microscope-silhouette-152-246940.png">
IE 10 Metro Tile Icon
To add your icon to Windows 8 Metro users you can add the following HTML code between the <head> </head> tags of the page. Replace #ffffff with your desired tile color.
<meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#ffffff" />
<meta name="msapplication-TileImage" content="/path/to/microscope-silhouette-144-246940.png">
If you want to be exact and cover every device (at the time of writing this anyway) you can use the rest of the following HTML code between the <head> </head> tags of your page.
The largest to smallest apple-touch-icons.

No Upload Option
If you do not want to upload a file or cannot upload a favicon file for some reason you can use a Base64 encoded version. This will allow you to use the favicon on this page without download the zip file package. You are limited to one size but it can be a quick and easy way to add a favicon to your website. Please note this does NOT work in Internet Explorer.
To use this no upload option copy the HTML code below and add it between the <head> </head> tags of the page. The image is encoded in the HTML, so no need to upload the favicon.ico file.
