When designing or coding a website, there is an easy method for including favicons next to the links. You cannot assume that a favicon is always at /favicon.ico of the URL, as there are different ways to specify which favicon a browser should display!

To get the favicon for a domain, use

http://www.google.com/s2/favicons?domain=www.google.de

To get the favicon for an URL, use

http://www.google.com/s2/favicons?domain_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.de%2F

To see an example how favicons can make a website look more colorful, look on IRCgg.
