Tinycon – a counter in favicon with JavaScript

The tinycon is a small library for the manipulating the favicon to transfer information about the new events. The browsers that do not support the canvas the counter is displayed in the title page.

It is very simple in use. We need to connect lib and write

The library also supports options, such as a choice of color, font and positioning of the counter:
width: 7,
height: 9,
font: '10px arial',
colour: '#ffffff',
background: '#549A2F',
fallback: true

I would like to draw your attention to fallback setting, which is responsible for displaying the counter in the title page for the unsupported browsers.

Here are the supported browsers

Tinycon has been tested and supports the following browsers:
Chrome 15+
Firefox 9+
Opera 11+
The counter only can be displayed in the title for the following browsers:
Internet Explorer 9
Safari 5
