I doubt Webkit directly supports saving on favourite, though i have not gone
through latest webkit source. But it is difficult as this is much to do with
platform/port on which webkit is implemented. However you can extract icons
from URL or even from HTML source for page.

So, basically you have to device a frame work for adding particular
A very primitive solution can be -
Once a new  URL is visited one can extract this and store it in database
with corresponding URL. Database can be anything - may be sqlite.

for e.g. one can fetch favicon which wil be in HTML as
<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://www.example.com/myicon.ico"/>
THis will certailny be dowmloaded as resource. Then it can be serilized.

THanks & Regards
