I really didn't ever have a favicon for my site, but now that I do, I'm so glad! It's easy to change with Phoca favicon and the installation couldn't have been simpler. Zero problems. Thanks!

I found this extension really easy to use as well. It does what I expected.
It should only be considered while preparing the original image file, that the favicon.ico will only be 16x16 pixel size. In case the original image would have the same ratio, than the result should be fine.

I have enough technology understand to stay out of trouble . . . as for knowing what the code is doing, NOPE. But, I do have enough to have virtuemart setup and setting with XML feeds - yes, I can hire developers, lol.

Based on others reviews I decided to give this a try. While not "important" the favicon is a branding tool and one of the first things people see. I also have friends that won't bookmark a page unless it has a unique and interesting favicon! Let's say they are NONtechies, but they are buyers.

This extension was EASY EASY EASY and effective. Sometimes it is OK to have extension that does one thing and does it well. You don't even have to load the .ico file . . . it creates it for you.

SUPER! Thank you.

As a complete newbie to Joomla! and anything more complicated than your old drag and drop homepage, a favicon was the LAST thing I was worried about adding to my new professional website.

While browsing extensions to get an idea of what capabilities were available, I came across Phoca Favicon. The write up said it was simple, and the reviews were good, so I decided to give it a try.

It was simple, quick, easy to use, and immediately put me notches above the rest of the sites out there with their canned tab icons!

This is a simple but very effective business web strategy that could easily be overlooked if someone does not have the knowledge to implement a simple icon. Thank you for making it so easy!

I've been trying to months to find change the favicon for IE. Managed to do it manually for the other browsers but like everything else browser-related, IE was difficult.

Then I came across this wonderful extension. Downloaded, installed, uploaded the image to the new folder, created the favicon, and voila~~~. Complete.

Thanks for this easy but effective tool!!
