Depending on the browser, the favicon also appears in the address bar, just before the URL. Favicons are generally 16 x 16 pixels or 32 x 32 pixels in size. Magento accepts ICO, PNG, JPG, and SVG file types, although not all browsers support these formats. The most widely supported file format to use for a favicon is ICO.
