It’s not just about making favicons interesting & catchy. This JS library comes in very handy for displaying notifications & updates on a tiny favicon on your Site.
In fact, you have probably already seen this a lot on the Net on popular services offered by companies like Google & Facebook. For example, Google includes small message notifications below the user’s favicon on its services. The notification is usually a number that shows how many messages/unread emails you have.
Apart from the type of animation, you can also customize the position, background color & text colorm font & font style, etc. The badge shape can be set to be either circular or rectangular.
All this is a significant leap above the usual favicon creation tools & status notifications you get to show on Web applications & communication apps.
Favico.js works on all the major web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Opera & IE11+.
This is an open source project available on Github, & you can get the source here.
