(I'm using the OpenPublic distro.)

1) From the organization logo, I need to create a favicon.

2) Upload favicon to Drupal site.

3) Ensure it works across all major browsers.

What's the best approach?

1: Create a favorite icon using any graphics program you want
2: Name it favicon.ico and upload it to the root directory of your website
3: Add the following line to the HEAD section of your page.tpl template file:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

I create my favicons here:
http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/

You can then go to the settings for the theme you are using and a choice is to upload a favicon.

Uploading the icon in the theme settings actually says: Upload icon image

The easiest way to replace the favicon.ico file is to simply drop it into the active, enabled theme. For instance, "/sites/all/themes/[theme]".
