    Question Adding icons to safari favorites bar
    I have started using the Favourites Bar in Safari and am adding “favorites” to it. I use a similar bar in Chrome and it serves my needs very well there. Is it possible with Safari to add icons to the names in the bar for my favorites?

    I know I can edit the names in Safari, but I still have to read them all to find a particular one that I want.

    In Chrome I use mostly icons or an icon and a short one word name or acronym because icons are more eye catching and easier to spot than just using plain old names; I don’t have to scan the whole bar to find something.

    Thanks,

    Peter B.

    No, not with the latest version of Safari. Previous versions it was possible but not with Safari version 8.

    I kind of figured that, so maybe I will stick to Chrome for now and hope it gets fixed in the future. It never makes sense when the programmers remove functionality when they do an update. It seems "barse ackwards" to me.
