Not a problem, just an observation. One of my favicons is animated. Have never seen that before. I can see retail sites using animated favicons, drawing your attention as a marketing strategy.

I know it's a gif. What's network logger and why do I need it?

Firefox gets 2 favicons in the network monitor and uses the animated one.

Chrome gets 1 favicon in the network panel.

Code: Select all
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon/favicon-192x192.png" sizes="192x192">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon/favicon-160x160.png" sizes="160x160">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon/favicon-96x96.png" sizes="96x96">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon/favicon-16x16.png" sizes="16x16">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon/favicon-32x32.png" sizes="32x32">
<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="/favicon/faviconAnim.gif" sizes="16x16">

I guess 16x16 png favicons aren't favored now.
