Turn on fav­i­cons in Sa­fari 12

Tabs can now dis­play site icons to make it eas­ier to iden­tify a web page, re­veals Ro­man Loy­ola

Macworld - - CONTENTS -

We’ve all had this hap­pen – in fact, it’s prob­a­bly hap­pen­ing on your web browser right now, and it prob­a­bly hap­pens all the time. You have so many tabs open that you can’t quickly find the tab you need.

Sa­fari 12 in macOS Mo­jave has a new fea­ture that dis­plays fav­i­cons – icons (usu­ally a logo) that rep­re­sent a web­site – right in the tab it­self. You can now find the tab you want with a sim­ple glance.

This ac­tu­ally isn’t as bad as it can get, but you get the idea: Too many tabs open, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to dis­cern the web page you want

The fav­i­con fea­ture isn’t turned on by de­fault in Sa­fari 12. Here’s how to turn it on.

1. Launch Sa­fari, lo­cated in the Ap­pli­ca­tions folder. It’s also placed in the Dock by de­fault.

2. Click the Sa­fari menu and se­lect Pref­er­ences.

3. Click on Tabs.

4. Check the box for Show web­site icons in tabs.

5. Close the Pref­er­ences.
