What's a Favicon
A favicon is a graphic image (icon) associated with a particular website.
Browers display them as a visual reminder of the Web site identity in the address bar or in tabs.
What 'Favicon for Links' does?
This addon automatically adds favicons to links in several areas of your site.
It will highlight links and also will help users to easily identify the websites they will be going to by clicking a link.
As mentioned, it works in several places of the site, such as:
- Resources & Resource Updates
- Profile Posts
What about performance?
This addon uses a Google's service for pulling the favicons directly on the front-end,
So your server won't need to do any processing.
In addition, it happens asynchronously, so it does not delay the loading of the page.
Few options to choose where not to show favicons
For example, you may not show it for signatures, or not add a favicon for internal links.
Also, each user can turn this feature off in his account preferences.
