If you have been using Gmail, you might notice that you actually can turn on a feature called "Unread message icon" in Google Lab. This feature will update the favicon with total unread email at bottom right corner. In this post, I have found 3 plugins that will help you to update favicon dynamically easily. Also, a favicon plugin that retrieve icon for anchor links.
- TinyconTinycon allows the addition of alert bubbles and changing the favicon image. Tinycon gracefully falls back to a number in title approach for browsers that don't support canvas or dynamic favicons.
- jQuery Favicon NotifierA super simple plugin that renders a notification number to the favicon.
- jQuery FaviconAdd favicons to anchor elements on your page.
