Hi - I've noticed in Firefox that certain web pages have a symbol next to the name of the site in the address bar and on the tabs for browsing. Does anyone Know how to Program This ??

This an entry item for the COMPUPEDIA file I'm thinking.

I knew the icon name but was not aware it was self-programable.

Thanks ColdinCbus for the referals.

You are quite welcome. One of these days I will get around to posting some of the really cool stuff you can add to the header of your web page that takes advantage of features in Firefox and IE and even Google.

For example you can make Firefox auto detect any RSS feeds on your site by add in a small tag bit to the header.
