Notice Favicon is an experimental tool. Use with caution, at your own risk.

This script is User:Ricordisamoa/Favicon.

Works on:

  • Wikipedia
  • Commons
  • Wikisource
  • Wikiquote


  • jQuery[[Category:Scripts that use jQuery]]

IMHO, the default broswser favicons in Wikipedia & Wikisource sucks: they are low-res, blurry, not-transparent.

Favicon.js replaces them with transparent, good-resolution ones. It also replaces the normal Commons icon with a thumbnail of the current image, allowing you to get a quick view directly from your browser, even with many open tabs.


Copy this in your common.js or vector.js:

importScript("User:Ricordisamoa/Favicon.js");//User:Ricordisamoa/FaviconCheck here who's using this script.
