    And just so that everyone knows, favicons have not worked 'properly' in Lightning, the browser I go on and on about, for quite some time.

    They only load up when you visit each site individually, and are purged before the next session.

    Now I know why.

    What is so safe about unpopular browsers?

    That is not the point.
    The point is, and the fact remains, that there are multiple browsers that are not popular (ie., used by the most people) that are much more secure than the heavily advertised ones and/or the ones that are forced upon us in the form of uninstallable bloatware- especially garbage like Chrome, Dolphin, and other such tripe which more often than not cannot even be disabled if it is included as a system app.
