It's a little ICO file called "favicon.ico" that you put in the root directory containing your principle web file (index.html, index.php, index.htm, etc...).

There are several online generators that will let you take an image you specify and convert it, some sophisticated enough to even re-size the images for you.

That is cool, but I have found that animated icons do more to annoy me than anything else, unless they are done really well that is. Smiley
