To use, simply call the function with options.

	title: 'Alternative title text right here!',
	faviconSrc: 'path/to/Alternative/favicon.ico',
	timeout: 5000 //5 seconds

The faviconSrc property is optional and will keep the same icon if not set.

The timeout property is optional, it takes an interval in milliseconds to before title & favicon change.

It is also possible to set the title property to an array of values and set an interval to switch between them as seen in the example below;

	title: ['Alternative title text', 'Another alternative title'],
	faviconSrc: 'path/to/Alternative/favicon.ico',
	interval: 1000 //1 second
