remove favicon.ico by default

See original GitHub issue

Angular starterkit uses the following code for favicon.

  <link rel="icon" href="data:;base64,iVBORw0KGgo=">

It would be good if create-react-app did the same. favicon.ico can also be supported specially for those who want to have custom favicon files that they want to publish.

What’s the downside of the status quo - you just don’t like having a favicon.ico file around if you don’t want a favicon for your project? It doesn’t seem too bad to just use the default one in that case.

If you already have a template loader, you can use it to parse the template. Please note that this will also happen if you specifiy the html-loader and use .html file as template.

Worth trying?
