If you’ve been coming to The Kneeslider over the years or even if you’re a brand new visitor, you may have added our site to your list of favorites. (You did do that, right?) If you have as many sites listed as most of us do, it’s easy to lose that new link in the long string of sites without some visual marker, what’s known as a favicon, that little image that shows up next to it in the list and in the browser address bar.
About a week ago, I got a note from Roel, one of our long time readers from the Netherlands, who got tired of searching for the link for so long he made an icon for us and sent it in, it’s that little red K on a black background you see now next to the link. I thought it looked pretty good so I added that to the site and it really stands out, don’t you think? Making a favicon has been on my list of things to do forever but it never had a high priority and kept getting passed over for other tasks and along comes Roel who just up and sends me one and I thought everyone should know who did it.
Roel, thank you. Little things like that mean a lot and I bet there are quite a few readers who really appreciate how much easier it is to see the link. A big thumbs up!
