Online Favicon Extractor

by

I found a cool “hidden” feature on the Yandex search engine. It is able to extract the favicon from any domain even if the server hosting the domain does not allow the visitor to do so. Simply click on the link and modify the url afterwards. Include the full domain including www after the slash and voila, a favicon ready to be saved. Great for password managers that support custom icons.

Instructions

  1. Link points to http://favicon.yandex.net/favicon/
  2. Want, let’s say the tumblr. favicon? Modify the above link to http://favicon.yandex.net/favicon/www.tumblr.com
  3. That’s it!
