Firefox Icons

Firefox Icons

If you are an avid Firefox user, you may have already noticed this next tip, but in case you haven’t, it’s kinda cool to know about! Every time you type in a Web address in the location bar in Firefox, a little icon representing that particular site will come up with it.

For example, if you were to visit CNN’s Web site, there would be a little icon next to the address that showed CNN’s symbol. These icons are pretty small, but they’re pretty neat to look at. Or if you went to MSNBC’s Web site, you would see the peacock symbol that NBC has always been known for. I even checked out some TV network Web sites and their little icons showed up too!

Here are some examples:

Now, if a certain Web site doesn’t really have an icon that represents them, just a file icon will appear, but most sites do have one. This may not seem like a big deal to some of you, but it is a neat little thing that Firefox does when you’re surfing the Internet. You will always know right where you’re at just by looking at the icon!
