Faviconographer – Tab Favicons in Safari for Mac.


50 bookmarks. First posted by michaelwoodruff 11 days ago.


Faviconographer is a little utility that displays Favicons for the tabs you have opened in the current Safari window, just like almost every other browser does it.
This helps you navigate between them more quickly.

When invoking the hotkey to show all application windows while in Safari, the Favicons stay floating in place. This is a limitation of Safari's AppleScript support in macOS 10.13 — it won't return URLs for tabs that have not yet been loaded. Under High Sierra, one user had to delete their Safari preferences file to make Faviconographer work. And because Timing lists your most frequently visted websites, it even has code to fetch Favicons from Safari's own cache already! Please check the issues listed above before reaching out —
most of these are technical limitations that can't be worked around, so no need to report them ;-)

How it works
Faviconographer asks Safari.app for a list of all visible tabs (and their positions) in the current window, and for the URLs of those tabs.
It then uses that information to fetch the corresponding icons from Safari's Favicon cache (WebpageIcons.db), and draws them above the Safari window.
It's a "hack" — the cleanest solution would be Apple implementing Favicons in Safari — but it works surprisingly well.
Note: Faviconographer does not "hack" your system. It does not inject code into other apps or manipulate system files. In fact, it doesn't even require Administrator access!

Daniel Alm (developer of the excellent time-tracking app [Timing]):

Faviconographer asks Safari.app for a list of all visible tabs (and their positions) in the current window, and for the URLs of those tabs.

It then uses that information to fetch the corresponding icons from Safari’s Favicon cache (WebpageIcons.db), and draws them above the Safari window.

It’s a “hack” — the cleanest solution would be Apple implementing Favicons in Safari — but it works surprisingly well.

Note: Faviconographer does not “hack” your system. It does not inject code into other apps or manipulate system files. In fact, it doesn’t even require Administrator access!

Daniel sent me a beta of this a few weeks ago, and I was dubious, to say the least. But it really does work surprisingly well. It’s not as good as true per-tab favicon support in Safari would be, but it’s closer than you think. And, importantly, it really is a clean hack, insofar as it doesn’t inject code or anything like that. And it’s free. If you use Safari you should try it.
