This thing is awesome, no hassle, no installation, and the perfect size for my application. Extremely quick and simple to use.

Super Idea...

I don't understand. I choose the picture (it's not 1MB or higher), I select the kind of icon I want, I click download, it takes me to a blank screen. There's literally nothing on the page. I even hit Tab and the only thing that would happen is the URL bar would be selected to edit. I don't know if I'm just doing something wrong, but if so, could you maybe make it a bit more clear on what to do on this page?

It should not do that, you should be getting the .ico file as a download. I would try a different web browser.
