Couple of questions.. What are they for and they are so small I can't tell much difference.

If number 8 is the milkway edge on I guess without knowing more that I vote for it.

What are they for ...

A favicon is used in your browser. It appears in the field beside you are seeing the adress URL (depends a bit on what browser you are using). It is also stored if you add an URL as bookmark to your browser, then you will see it besides the bookmark. And it's used beside the open tabs in the browser also.

What is the advantage of a favicon, and why do we need one?

It looks to me like an completely unnecessary bit of bling with the same worth!

Well, a favicon is no big thing but if you have more tabs opened in your browser window you can easily distingush the pages with different favicons. ;-)
The same goes for the bookmarks like DoctorNow wrote before.

If one doesn't like favicons it will even not disturb very much because it's only a small icon but for those of us who like to browse many project foras it's quite pleasant to have one.
That's why I started creating some and thankfully Ice joined me. ;-)
Lovely greetings, Cori

Really?

If you go to the SETI home page you will see a little man on an "@" sign to the left of the SETI@HOME url. It is the seti favicon. Other projects also have a favicon. I have a camera favicon for my photography site - www.antonphotos.com - which is based on my Canon EOS 40D camera.

On the Milkyway home page you will see the microsoft 'standard' browser favicon to the left of the MilkyWay url.

If you think it is unnecessary 'bling' and instead a boring microsoft favicon should be displayed here, then that is your opinion.

I prefer Cori's opinion and have enjoined seeing her favicons and creating my own suggestions (for which I have all the .ico files which the admin here are welcome to :)

I will vote for no. 3 - nice one Cori :)

2. is very similar to Opera's default icon.
9. and 10. are quite similar to the orbit@home icon.

I vote for 6.
