So why, when I drag a URI from the browser bar onto the 'Desktop', doesn't the
desktop as icon use the favicon, or the favicon in a frame of some sort to warn that 
it is a URI not a file for security?)   Maybe it does with some desktop software.

Should we have a way of making a favicon for an individual web page with a typed link?

Same of course for phones.

Just a thought
