    I am enjoying bookmarking my favorite web sites on my iPhone by storing a webloc on the home screen. I am trying to do that on my Mac, and that works well by dragging the web address from Safari on the desktop. However, what I get is a webloc with the correct URL (link works perfect), but always the same HTTP@ icon.

    Why Safari does not get the favicon automatically as the iPhone is doing?

    Recoverig the favicon from a web site is easy by just adding favicon.ico after the website address and the favicon is automatically downloaded.

    But how to replace the HTTP@ icon by the correct one?

    Thanks in advance for help.

    Anyone figure this favicon for webloc files instead of the default icon?

    Anyway that when you drag an address to the desktop or to anywhere in leopard, it puts that http @ icon. I think it be much cooler that when dragging it to the desktop, that it would put the favicon. I like how the Iphone does it too. Does anyone know how to do this?
