[rellect] Favicon for Links

Will it affect my site's performances?
The process of fetching a favicon is done using a Google's service.
Your server isn't affected by the effort of pulling the favicons.
In addition, it all happens asynchronously, so it does not delay the loading of the page.
You can choose where not to show a favicon.
For example, you may not show it for signatures, or not add a favicon for internal links.
