A small library for manipulating the favicon, in particular adding alert bubbles and changing images. Tinycon gracefully falls back to a number in title approach for browers that don't support canvas or dynamic favicons.

See the Live Demo here.


Tinycon adds a single object to the global namespace and does not require initialisation.

Basic Usage



Tinycon can take a range of options to customise the look

  • width: the width of the alert bubble

  • height: the height of the alert bubble

  • font: a css string to use for the fontface (recommended to leave this)

  • colour: the foreground font colour

  • background: the alert bubble background colour

  • fallback: should we fallback to a number in brackets for browsers that don't support canvas/dynamic favicons

        	width: 7,
      	height: 9,
      	font: '10px arial',
      	colour: '#ffffff',
      	background: '#549A2F',
      	fallback: true
