Historically, Microsoft decided to use the ico-format for favicons in Internet Explorer 5 in 1999. There are not as many ico-editors as there are png-editors which is why we decided to go with png instead: it's easier for our users and allows for better quality icons. By the way, not "every favicon is .ico". There are plenty websites out there that use gif or png.

I think I was way to harsh on that day, sorry for that!
