Summary0002604: Plain, standard icon for saved web pages as alternative to autogenerated thumbnail images
DescriptionNetSurf takes the trouble to generate a tiny 34x34 image of every web page when yu do a Full Save. But they're just blobs and I'm afraid I mostly find them untidy. They're also frequently indistinguishable from one another. (I use small icons, which does make this issue worse) Please may I just have a generic 'Saved web page' file sprite rather than every page having its own 'unique in theory but not usefully unique in practice' autogenerated icon? Sorry.

I appreciate this would require a config setting. You already have an option 'Use thumbnails for iconised windows' (and if it's off you just get a generic pinned window icon); a sister setting 'Use thumbnails for Full Saves of web pages' would be perfect. I could just turn it off and settle for a standard default sprite without having to manually intervene in every full save directory, which is what I do now.
