    I know with most icons, you can just hold them down and it gives you the option to change their representing icon. However, that doesn't seem to be the case with links to websites. Anyone know how to do this?

    You mean you have a bookmark link widget on your home screen and you want to change the icon of it? If so, I don't think this is possible without Rooting or some home replacement app like ahome or something :)

    I always wondered why it doesn't automatically grab the websites favicon as the icon. The only thing I've been able to find is "Bookmark 2" it lets you make a homescreen bookmark and choose the image from the website that you want for the icon. Though it doesn't seem to be working properly with my N1, as far as the icon crop size.
