Hi rahul,
Yes, .ico is best for favicon and all browsers support it. When you have website you should definitely go for .ico but, for blogger its better to go for .gif if u use .ico it will be replaced by the default favicon.

I have an .gif file that I converted to a .ico file ~ using i_veiw32 ~ but my problem is that I don't know how to upload it to my Blogger Blog. I have created website before and I know I have to upload it to a server ~ so how do I do that for Blogger? Thanks, Ann
