The favicon is a bunny!

Watership Down references are so depressingly rare...

Hey Crash, why not allow fav icons? I have a bunch of other super geeks friends that I remember saying something similar, but I can't remember why. Enlighten me?

From 4WebHelp:

When you bookmark a page, the browser requests the favicon.ico file. The web surfer is unaware that a request has been made and users can not turn this feature off. The web site can then use their logs to build a record of the user's bookmarked pages. Visitors could then be tracked by a cookie. This would allow sites to build more profiles of visitors interests. I'm not sure how you could do this, so if anyone can fill me in on the details please contact me. Most people do not think the privacy concerns that result from this bookmarking/favicons scheme are anything to worry about. (No one has created a real uproar regarding the privacy issues related to favicon branded bookmarks).

This is strange, but I didn't even see that one, which is very cool. We can change it! (No offense taken here, ethylene - the current bunny was just clip art that I added a leg and another ear to.)

I don't have any concerns security-wise or anything like that, PsychoKitty, I just like my bookmarks to look a certain way.
