TIP: avoid favicon request on web server.

Tracing the log of my web page, I got a lot of noise for the favicon requests.

Here is the way to avoid them in you HTML pages:

<link rel='icon' href='data:;base64,iVBORw0KGgo='>

Hope it helps.

Or, simply provide a favicon. Any favicon. ALL you have to do is provide the little file when requested.

Or no content and a HTTP 204...

It would be interesting to see if just sending “iVBORw0KGgo” back to the browser would satisfy its hunger for an icon.
