16 Lines of Code for a Favicon. Seriously?

The Real Favicon Generator is a great tool. It takes your one large icon and turns it into a PNG or ICO suitable for every browser and platform on the planet. Plus it gives you the code to paste into your site. The problem is, it’s sixteen lines! For a favicon! There’s something wrong with the world when you need to bloat your HTML with 16 <link> tags just so you can have a pretty favicon on mobile, Windows 8, and a few other browsers. But I’m not in charge so I reluctantly stuck those sixteen lines into a partial and dutifully included them at build time. Lame.

This is stupid.
