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:
  • Posts
  • Signatures
  • Resources & Resource Updates
  • Profile Posts
  • etc..

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.

No options available at this point.

This was originally one of the neatest small addons on the XF1 versions. I was glad seeing rellect importing this one over to XF2. Using it over a year now and it helps immensely to detect links in posts and is visually appealing. Thank you.
Works in 2.1. Very helpful in identifying links inside post content. Especially when identifying spammers.
My only gripe is I'd like to have an option to have a different icon for internal links. It looks a bit silly on large explanatory posts leading to various parts of your site.
