Retrieves the relevant favicon for a URL, or returns a default icon should it not be able to find it. Works better than the Google version as it will find favicons specified by an HTML page's <link> element.

Feel free to hotlink, although it would be nice if you could email me if you're going to make more than a couple of requests a second.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
