Favicon Downloader

The Favicon Downloader is a specialized tool created by Paw specifically for downloading favicon images from websites. This ensures that these icons can be displayed next to the user’s login item.

How It Works

The Favicon Downloader starts by visiting the website’s page and only scans the HEAD section of the HTML to find favicon details. If it doesn’t find anything there, it tries one last fetch from the /favicon.ico URL.

Usage Frequency

This tool activates and downloads icons only when a user adds or updates the URL field in a login item. Therefore, its usage frequency is expected to be low.

User Agent

The tool makes HTTP requests using the following User Agent:
