SVG Favicons Are Not Supported Yet

I really want to do the following, but I’m still stuck with Microsoft’s icon format and PNG.

SVG would be perfect to also offer a nice larger size icon. Another thing I didn’t know is that IE7 still doesn’t support PNGs as favicons.

Last, but not least, here is the favicon I created in the end: A favicon that depicts the face of a monkey..
