Most websites only provide a 16x16px favicon, but what can we do if we want a larger icon to represent a site? Faaborg had an idea to use the dominant color of this favicon to color the background of a box surrounding the icon. Yesterday I used the canvas API to prototype this idea for a new tab page, and it turned out pretty well! https://gist.github.com/1017111 http://ed.agadak.net/2011/06/restartless-dominant-color
