I know it's trivial, but who wouldn't an icon displayed when browsing WordPress admin area? =)

If you have a favicon for the frontend of your site, it is also displayed on your dashboard. (If I remember correctly, all latest versions of all major browsers pick the favicon up.)

Why should WordPress mess with that?

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I think the dealbreaker here, besides messing with others' favicons, is that you won't be able to distinguish backends.

This should work fine:

add_action( 'admin_head', 'my_wp_admin_favicon' );
my_wp_admin_favicon() {
    echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" href="" />';

Closing as wontfix.
