    Favorites Icon Behavior

    I'm currently using IE-11 64 bit on a Windows 7 Pro machine as my default browser. I also have Chrome and Firefox and one feature that they have that I really like is the favorites/bookmarks Icon changes color letting you know if you have already saved a webpage. IE does not do that nor does it have to ability to sync to other machines. I'm about to change default browsers because of this. Just wondering what others think about IE vs Firefox, vs Chrome. Although IE is pretty snappy, I'm finding that the features of the other browsers are about to sway me.

    I use both FF and GC, I don't remember such a feature. Maybe others can remember better than I.

    With Win 8/8.1/10 if you use a Microsoft account you can sync your Favorites across all machines using the Microsoft account.

    I haven't seen such a feature either but I have seen where links on a page will show a different color when coming back to that same page, shows those other links have been visited.

    Some sites will use a favicon.ico image file on their page/s which will show at the left end of the URL in the Address Bar [I use one on my site]. I've not noticed that icon change color or come across any HTML coding that will do it.
