How to Favicon in 2021 (on CSS-Tricks)

Visit external resource

Some excellent favicon tips from Chris Coyier, referencing Andrey Sitnik’s recent article of the same name.

I always appreciate someone looking into and re-evaluating the best practices of something that literally every website needs and has a complex set of requirements.

Chris is using:

<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico"><!-- 32x32 -->
<link rel="icon" href="/icon.svg" type="image/svg+xml">
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/apple-touch-icon.png"><!-- 180x180 -->
<link rel="manifest" href="/manifest.webmanifest">

And in manifest.webmanifest:

"icons": [
{ "src": "/192.png", "type": "image/png", "sizes": "192x192" },
{ "src": "/512.png", "type": "image/png", "sizes": "512x512" }
