"Creating a favicon take minutes anyway without this extension"
With this component it takes some seconds.
Using this component saves users some steps while creating favicon:
- you need not to resize your image (Phoca Favicon will create icon from image which have any size)
- you need not to convert image to ico file
- you need not to copy this ico to server, to template folder.
So it is the same like you will say, you need not Joomla! because you can write all your articles direct into the php files. Users who have no image editor, who don't know resizing images, who don't have any idea how to convert image to ico type, who don't know the place where to copy this icon, maybe they will appreciate this help.
If you don't need this help, it is very easy, just uninstall this component and make all these steps manually.
