Agreed. Chrome is a creepy, bloated mess. Safari is a better browser in almost every way, but it has two things that frustrate the hell out of me:

* The favicons, that Gruber addressed here. I've somewhat mitigated this by pinning common tabs, but again why not show the actual icon rather than a square letter?

* The inflexible address bar that doesn't fill all that wasted space. I can't think of any good reason at all for this.

Favicons are dumb. The better answer is tree-style tabs, where the tabs are along the left side, kind of like the sidebar that Safari already has for bookmarks.

Favicons are awesome.

Gruber the Booger:
This is the kind of thing that I think about constantly and keeps me up at night.

I put this directly into my "shit nobody with a life gives a shit about" file.

Culturally appropriated:
Favicons aren't displayed in Safari because Safari has had severe issues with favicons.

Maybe they can get an intern to re-enable them, and write a favicon database that doesn't fuck up the OS' performance.

No argument from me on this one. Not having favicons is really stupid.

What about performance? Gruber completely ignores it.

If it would make Safari slower, they shouldn't bother with this nonsense.

Displaying a bunch of tiny static images would slow down the browser... kek...

You have a very low IQ anon.

100% agree that this change is needed. I never use Safari due to this reason PLUS the in-general worse tabs compared to Chrome. Fix tab behavior and I'd switch to Safari in a heartbeat.

You can see the performance implication of favicons just by pulling down your history menu. See how they take longer to show up?
