Favicon is not displaying in google chrome

I have a html site.The issue is favicon not working in chrome but it worked well in Firefox & Safari.

Anyone can help me to get rid of this issue?

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="images/ico"
href="http://www.example.com/images/favicon.ico" />

Answer

Have a look at this question: Favicon not showing up in Google Chrome

1) Clear your cache. http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95582 And test another browser, lets say safari. How did you import the favicon?

2) How you should add it:

Normal favicon:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

PNG/GIF favicon:

<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="favicon.gif" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="favicon.png" />

3) Another thing could be the problem that chrome can't display favicons, if it's local (not uploaded to a webserver).
