Add Favicon in HTML

To add a favicon in an html document, we use the link tag. While for internet explorer we use meta tag. The favicon works correctly in all types of browsers and devices, so we add favicon of different sizes. These sizes are as follows: 16x16, 32x32, 57x57, 76x76, 96x96, 120x120, 128x128, 152x152, 180x180, 192x192, 196x196, 228x228 etc. 

According to the code shown below, you can easily add  favicon icons to any HTML document:
