Do you visit my site from a bookmark or favorites, rather than from a blogroll? If so, is there suddenly a neat little icon-thingy showing up next to my site-name in your bookmarks, favorites list, or address bar, an icon different from the standard Internet Explorer or other browser-logo thingy? How 'bout y'all on Firefox and Netscape products? Can you see it?

If you're using a bookmark to reach this site, and you can't see that little icon - which I think is quite cool - would you do me a favor? Would you delete your current bookmark and re-bookmark this page, and see what pops up? I can't figure out whether I've got this whole favicon thing working yet, or not. Let me know. Thankee.

LATER: My thanks to everyone who chimed in. I'm looking at how exactly to go about making my favicon render in more browsers, but I'm glad that it seems to be working in so many. I had so much fun doing mine I did 'em for Momma and Daddy, too. Check it out.

Blogroll of course.

But, I deleated and recreated a bookmark, and yes, it is one of those cool things.

I don't see it coming in from my blogroll, but refreshing the page shows it in Firefox and Mozilla.

Explorer here, on a fav list. Yeppers, new icon works! Kinda scary though . . .

Don't see it in Mozilla. I can see it in IE.

It shows up in my Firefox too, but only if i refresh the page after getting here from my RSS reader.

From Blogroll. It shows up in Firefox. It also shows in the bookmarks (just bookmarked it to check).

Pretty neat icon thingy, btw.

Doesn't show in my Mozilla, even after refresh.

I just get a little question mark on Firefox...not the cool little stink-eye thing I see in the browser bar....

I see it from the blogroll in IE.

Not getting it in Safari either

I can see the icon in my bookmark list when I bookmark the site in IE, but not in Firefox. I don't see it with either browser when I look at my Bloglines list.

However th' hell do you doooo that, anyway?

Just noticed that in Firefox, I see it in the Browser bar. Cool beans!

I removed it from my favs, then added it, your ICON showed up (using IE) but I have a feeling upon rebooting my machine I will be back to the IE icon (thats been my experience with other cool icons, sadly)

I'll join the masses and state that I, too, get the icon in the address bar in Mozilla (basic) and Firefox. (I come from blogroll so I have no idea if it shows up in my bookmarks.)
