Topic: favicon.ico of site is really big (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


When I was developing my arduino based website I learned about favicon.ico.
So I thought to reuse the arduino.cc/favicon.ico on my arduino.
This tuned out to be a bad idea because it took the arduino a very long time to send the icon (I have to slow down sending due to hardware setup)
Therefore I looked at some size of the favicon.ico of some popular sites and came up with the following table
arduino 367.958 bytes
mozilla 2.550 bytes
microsoft 3.638 bytes
Not being limited by my lack of knowledge of this feature it looks to me like there is room for a performance increase of the arduino web site  8)

you're very right,  its a 128x128 icon where a 32x32 (16 times smaller) should be sufficient or even 16x16 => 64 times smaller!

But fortunately the icon file is cached by your browser so it is only the first time its is slower than needed. But still worth todo imho

I just opened this file with gimp.

What I got was many many layers with different icon sizes. It seems this file contains every possible icon size there is.
