Use emoji for a tighter (and cuter) bookmarks bar in Safari
I like Safari’s bookmark syncing with my iPhone, its speed, and some other features. But I always missed the Stylish extension in Chrome that let me display favicons in the bookmarks bar. Safari still can’t replicate this, but I found something almost as good: Emoji!
The iPhone has supported these Japanese-inspired little graphical doohickeys for a while, and now so does the Mac OS in Lion and Mountain Lion.
Just right-click a bookmark and select Rename Bookmark…
Then click the Edit menu and select Special Characters… to bring up the character picker palette, now with Emoji!
Double-click the symbol you want and press return.
They even sync with your iPhone.
