I think the favicon has losts it popularity. It was in a couple of years ago but now people don't really bother with them anymore.

Ooh, I wouldn't be too sure Len. That question gets asked here very regularly, and I get people asking me all the time how to do it.
I'd say that there is more chance of it becoming a staple feature than a faded fad.

You should specify the type 'image/x-icon' for the favicons as well in the tag.

And the server needs to be configured properly to send .ico files with this mime-type, if I'm not mistaken?
