This is a really easy way to brighten up your link pages - by using the favicons of the pages you're linking to!
A site's favicon is typically displayed in your browser's address bar, and in your favourites or bookmarks. Their standard location is http://some.domain.com/favicon.ico. They have a standard size (16 x 16px) and are ideal for placing next to your links. We use fav2png throughout SectorPrime.
Most modern browsers display the .ico format (the normal format for favicons). So why use this script?
It converts the favicon to png format, for even greater browser compatibility.
If the site doesn't have a favicon, it servers up a default icon instead.
The script can be easily modified to change the size and age of the image cache.
The actual image manipulation is provided by Tony Cook's Imager.pm.
This code is free under the GNU GLP (see code header of Fav_2_Png.pm). For a general image-conversion program, see our image converter; for other PNG-supporting applications, see libpng.org.
