Replace those lame site's favicons with awesome ones of your own!
This plugin allows you to fix those sites that never put a favicon. Now you can set any site's favicon from your own browser. Especially useful for sites you want to pin and sites that have such an ugly favicon that you want to poke your own eyes out.
Missing and ugly favicons beware.
Yes... I hate missing favicons enough to write an extension to replace/override them.
Urls match the start of the url, so "http://www.goo" would match "http://www.goober.com" and "http://www.google.com".
*If you find an issue and want it fixed, post it on the Support and FAQ page.
Known issues I haven't fixed yet (I have an idea how to fix them, just no time to do so yet):
* Opening a tab by middle clicking (or right clicking -> new tab) will not fire the extension on that tab.
* Application shortcuts favicons are flaky right now. You may notice them work sometimes and not others.
Version 1.2 -
* Fixed bug where icon wasn't reverted to the blank page favicon when the custom favicon was removed.
* Fixed load so it applies the custom favicon when you first open chrome
* Updated images/icons for this extension
Version 1.1 -
* Prevented the icon reloading when you just click the textbox.
* Fixed a bug where removing saved favicons didn't actually get removed.
