Assuming Finder --> View --> View Options --> Show Icon Preview is enabled, is it possible for a .webloc file icon to show a preview of the referenced web-page?
I think the browser would have to do this, when I drag from the browser URL box to the desktop. But so far, with multiple popular browsers, I see nothing but not-very-informative standard icons. For example, the Safari compass.
Does any popular browser support this, say, through a preference setting or an add-in?
Motivation: I can now sort through a bunch of TextEdit files by putting them in a folder, view them as icons, and using the Finder option to increase the icon size until enough is visible -- document "shape" and larger text. Why not .weblocs?
Obviously, the browser-created .webloc file name should be useful, but often it is not, and --when I'm collecting a bunch of .webloc files for reference use-- it is a bit of a pain to have to edit the name of each.
Obviously the icon content would be a snapshot at the time of collecting the .webloc. I assume there is no way to see the current content. OK by me. Thinking about the potential for just a minute, this possibility seems at minimum creepy ... to very undesirable, unless completely under user control. Well, anyway, the kinds of reference pages I want to collect and sort through generally don't change much.
