When you save a local copy of a web page with NetSurf you get an icon file
which is a tiny thumbnail view of the entire web page. I don't like these
very much - I find them untidy. Given that you can control whether or not
iconised windows use thumbnail images, it's a bit odd that one has no
control at all over the 'saved page icons'. I'd prefer a generic 'saved web
page' app icon, or nothing at all, giving the RISC OS default icon. If a web
page provided an .ico file, I guess many people might prefer to use
Is it possible to turn off the 'IconSprites' line in the mini !Run files
NetSurf provides you, which currently reads
Providing better control over this does seem like a legit use for a
configuration option. I'm a bit surprised that !Run file (and/or an
option Boot file) aren't available as editable resources.
At present I'm deleting the unwanted Sprites files and tweaking the !Run
files by hand, which is a chore.
