    Nice. Bookmarked! I will be adding to my daily rotation.

    The custom icon for certain sites is a nice touch. I wonder how they are doing that. At first, I thought it was just a favicon grab but some of them have brand-correct background colors or things not found in the actual site's favicon.

      I'm glad you like it! Unfortunately there's no magic going on. In the future I'll maybe write a Python service to grab the apple precomposed icons, but for now it's done by hand.

      For popular websites we have a json file that contains the domain names and the corresponding favicon urls. So as the list grows we have to add less and less icons.

      Another thing we could do would be to replace of the default orange disk with the dominant colour of the website in question. There's a pretty long list of features we want to add :)
