    That's a good question! I've never seen an animated Favicon, so I'll have to say no until I see otherwise.

    i could be wrong, but, as far as i know, icons can't be animated (have you ever seen an animated one in Windows?). and a favicon is simply an icon.

    I think that it is not possible to create an animated icon at the moment because it is not part of the icon's protocol. But maybe, if some genus created a program which could create animated icons...

    I don't think animated favicons is possible at all - .ico files simply cant animate.

    Besides, if something was animated among my booksmarks, it would annoy the hell out of me, and I'd probably end up deleting it.
