Great “hack” popularized by Lea Verou (but first discovered by Leandro): if you place an emoji inside
<text> in an SVG Favicon you instantly have an Emoji Favicon 🙂
Now that all modern browsers support SVG favicons, here's how to turn any emoji into a favicon.svg:
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 100 100">
<text y=".9em" font-size="90">💩</text>
Useful for quick apps when you can't be bothered to design a favicon!

Beware of potential clipping on various platforms though, as emoji differ per platform.
