I know 16 colors is considered the safest.
But can a favicon use 256 colors?
What could be a reason not to use 256 colors?

Thanks in advance for your comments.



With regards,

If you go beyond 16 colors, you should use a "multi-resolution" .ico -
e.g., containing 16x16, 32x32 and 48x48 with both 16 colors and 256
colors versions in the icon.

The only reason not to use would be that the icon file's size is
slightly larger.
