I can understand it's asynchronous if it doesn't exist in the database and we need download it from the network. Why should it be asynchronous if it already exists in the database? Otherwise, that beats the purpose of having a local database. 

Developers like to use iconForURL to display icons for the bookmarks bar or bookmarks menu. We shouldn't rely on QWebFrame just to retrieve an icon from the database. 

Are you guys always checking for updates over network when iconForURL is called for the first time during a session? If that is the case, we'd hope there is an option to get it from cache only and return immediately.
