Animated Favicons, Firefox Only?

By | September 12, 2007 | 3 Comments

Web BrowsersIs there anything wrong with the code itself or only Firefox (and Firefox based browsers) can handle animated favicons?

[link href="ico.gif" TYPE="image/gif" REL="icon"]
Changed <> with the [] so code would be visible.

I’ve checked this site with Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2.0.0.6, Opera 9.23, Opera 9.5 Alpha, Safari 3.0.3 Beta, and only in Firefox I’ve seen animated favicon. Any ideas?
