#197 closed enhancement (notabug)

display web site favicon or library icon in Journal

Reported by: skierpage Owned by: tomeu
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: journal Version: 0.82.x
Severity: Minor Keywords: GPA
Cc: eben, garycmartin, walter Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


(I am re-filing bug 9188 from here per tomeu's request.)

If you go to Journal to find some web site or local collection you explored, they all appear with Browse's generic "globe" icon.

It would be nice if the Journal displayed the favicon of the web site, or the library icon of the collection. Maybe it could decorate its globe icon with the favicon/library icon, or something.

(I have never seen a web site favicon in Browse, but bug 3602 on suggests that Browse does display the favicon somewhere.)

I'm not convinced. Yes, a pervious Browse session have a 'last page you were at' effect when you resume, but it also has bookmarks recorded in the session, and history of all pages visited in that session. It is not like the Journal Browse entry is a trivial single page history. I find I have a handful of task based Browse Journal entries I frequently reuse and title to match the task (one for trac tickets, one for, one for general browsing, etc).

It seems more appropriate to use favicons to help identify saved 'site specific browsers', or saved web page snapshots for off-line reading.

I think this is useful per:
"- Weren't sure which item in journal was the state image they just downloaded."

More is needed (e.g. thumb nail of picture) but this is a step in the right direction.

  • Milestone changed from 0.88 to 0.90

This is related to the general topic of thumbnails in the Journal... maybe 0.90 will see a major refactoring of the Journal UI.

This is an old ticket, I think is not relevant anymore. If anyone disagrees please be free to open it again and discuss.
