This is the only PPC app I use regularly, and the only one I'll miss when I upgrade to from Snow Leopard to Lion.

Anyone know how to get Faviconic's functionality in an Intel app?

Why would you buy it???

you can get the "favicon" if you go to that website and in the URL bar add "favicon.ico" after the "http://www.website.com/". eg: "http://www.google.com.au/favicon.ico"

That is a great tip. Yet, it does not work with the blue favicon at:
https://www1.gotowebinar.com
Instead, you get the golden favicon (not the blue one).

Anyone knows how to get the blue favicon of such site?
Thanks.

@Macupx
"/favicon.ico" after a website's URL is just the default location and name of the favicon. Not all sites use the default. If you use your browser's "View source" on www1.gotowebinar.com and then search for ".ico" you'll see that their favicon is at "/fec/images/g2w_favicon.ico"; i.e., the favicon's URL is "https://www1.gotowebinar.com/fec/images/g2w_favicon.ico". Is Faviconic smart enough to handle non-default favicon URLs?

Oops, https://www1.gotowebinar.com actually redirects to http://www.gotomeeting.com/fec/webinar, so the URL for the favicon is actually http://www.gotomeeting.com/fec/images/g2w_favicon.ico

Very nice indeed!

Used to have a folder full of boring and identical looking, meaningless .webloc icons. Faviconic changed that.

Now... for sites without favicon.ico, could I request that the .webloc icon be changed to the default style? :)

Keep up the good work!
