NOTE: This is meant as a sort of "blank template" that can change any site icon into any picture you want. For best results, the picture 
should be 16px x 16px. To customize the script to fit your needs, first 
change the @include to the site where you would like to change the icon. Then change the url where I have specified to the site where the picture resides.    

(function() {
	var link = document.createElement('link');
	link.setAttribute('rel', 'shortcut icon');

// Change this to the site of the picture you want to use for an icon

// Sets dimensions of icon. 16px x 16px is the standard size
	link.setAttribute('height', '16px');
	link.setAttribute('width', '16px');

	var head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];
