Whenever I generate a
favicon.ico using html-kit.com, it gives me the option to get an animated version. I've never used an animated favicon, but other than it being "visually noisy" is there any reason it's a bad idea?
Are there any creative or interesting usages of an animated favicon out there?
EDIT To be clear, the animated version html-kit gives you is a GIF, which you can point to using a meta tag. Sorry for implying favicon.ico image format supports animation!
