Favicons
Ok, lets discuss a tiny small performance tweak this weekend :-)! The favicon.

I think this: the favicon should be small, no bigger than 1KB. So that it can load very fast. For that reason we use a favicon of 318 bytes on our website...

Preferrably put this favicon in the root of your site, and let browsers deal with it. This is better than linking to the favicon in the html because that line of code makes your html (a tiny tiny bit) bigger with no extra benefit.

But today I saw this:

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/gif" href="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhEAAQAIAAAAAAAAAAACH5BAkAAAEALAAAAAAQABAAAAIgjI+py+0PEQiT1lkNp​ppnz4HfdoEH2W1nCJRfBMfyfBQAOw=="/>

This is a favicon in base64 encoding? Is this an even better way to do a favicon?
