It would be great to upload a favicon in more modern file formats like png or jpg. The .ico format is sooo 1999.

You are absolutely right. I'm just always thinking about ice first because for older IE (or newer ones even - don't know right now?) you need the ico. But that's no reason why I couldn't offer a PNG upload. I'll think about it.

Thanks for your reply. I believe IE6 (and maybe IE7) does not support .png, but IE8+ does. In one of our apps we switched to png a while ago because even Google and YouTube dropped support for IE7.
