Completely re-written from the ground up, Multicons is a multi-favicon code generator which automatically inserts the necessary meta tags for both favicons (site-wide and/or admin) and Apple Touch / iPhone icons.
Not sure what a favicon is? "A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon is a 16×16 or 32×32 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page's favicon in the browser's address bar and next to the page's name in a list of bookmarks. Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically show a page's favicon next to the page's title on the tab. Some programs allow the user to select an icon of their own from the hard drive and associate it with a website." – Wikipedia
Favicons have a subtle if small, role in building the branding of a website. When a user takes notice of a favicon it can often be a good indication they have come to the right place serving as a visual representation of a website not only in the browser address bar but also when sifting through bookmarks. It is no secret that our eyes gravitate towards images before the text and not just on the web but iPhones and iPads as well.
