Favicons are the icons of the Web sites that appear in the browser tabs and that serve to identify each one of the Web pages open in the different tabs of your Web browser. These web page icons are displayed next to the title of their corresponding open page..
In browsers such as Google Chrome, when we access a website, the icon for this website is displayed in the browser tab by default. This is of great help to identify the open tabs in your browser and access the specific website you want without getting confused.
On the contrary, by default the Favicons in the Safari web browser for Mac or MacBook may be disabled. This means that the browser will only show the title of the websites that you have open in the different browser tabs. The icons of the Webs will not be displayed in the Safari tabs, which makes it difficult to identify each of these open webs in the Safari tabs..
Fortunately, MacOS offers a setting that allows you to enable or disable Fabicons in the Safari browser so that you can decide whether or not you want to display them in the browser's open tabs.
That said, below we show you in detail how to activate or deactivate the Favicons (web page icons) in the tabs open in the Safari browser on Mac or MacBook with the MacOS operating system:
