Hey guys does anybody know how to create one of those mini icons or images that are displayed on the top of your "favorites/bookmarks tool bar"... firefox has them when you add favorites/bookmarks to your toolbar and chrome as them too. It would be cool if VBB had a small icon ... if you still don't know what I'm referring to, check out the pic below for examples...

cool. I don't think I can do this on Safari, it's just the words... Firefox is available on Mac too right?

The above capture image was taken of Google's Chrome Incognito. It has been my choice as of late for browsers, although a few things are still shakey with java support and some links, once they twerk it out a bit, I think it will be the shiz.

I think you are referring to the favorite icon.
It is a image file that needs to be stored in the root directory of the website.
They are fairly easy to make.

I think they are cool, Jase, can you tell me the information that I'd need? Specifically where it needs to go, file name, and dimensions, format? Then I can make one and it'll be party time

Yep. You can download it for macs. Give it a shot. I know a lot of people who use Firefox instead of Safari on their macs.

Just go to mozilla.com/firefox to download. It should detect your OS and point you in the right direction.

Wassup, I had a go at it, and the icon is showing up for me on my computer. I may make a prettier one soon, but I put this one up as a test. Can everyone else see it?

I see it too, although it didn't show up in my "bookmarks bar", maybe I need to reload the browser for that to happen....
