    Pros: 

    Finding tabs is so much easier!

    Cons: 

    When going into page view the favicon should stick to safari, not travel with you.

    This tool has made my work life so much easier. I normally have 20+ tabs open full of analytics and so on and finding each one was a pain. Everybody should have this installed.

    Jordan Foy has used this product for one month.
  • Pros: 

    Favicons, yay!

    Cons: 

    Dim inactive tab icons to grayscale?

    Wonderful idea, creative execution :-)

Hello everyone! After John Gruber wrote about Safari's lack of tab Favicons last month, I tried remixing some components of my existing app Timing (https://producthunt.com/posts/ti...) into an app that displays tab Favicons for Safari. It works by asking Safari for a list of all tabs with their titles, URLs and positions, then uses these to fetch the corresponding Favicons and overlay them on top of the current Safari window. I hope you'll find this useful — let me know with a comment!

This looks interesting and useful, congratulations on launching it, Daniel! I think the main challenge is the layout, and more importantly, the spacing. It looks kind of crammed together. But I guess there's nothing that can be done about that.

@luksape yeah, unfortunately I can't manipulate the layout of Safari's tabs. I think it works better for tabs than for the favorites bar, so that's disabled by default 😅

Great idea, taking such a suggestion and turning it into an app, Daniel!
