Mozilla's support for <link rel="icon" /> is much nicer than favicon,
because it is page-specific, which is much better than favicon, which by
nature is domain-wide.  Bookmarks point to URL's, so the contents of
'that' URL should be the one specifying the icon, not some domain favicon,
which might be out of the control of the page author.
