Is there any way to stop Brave showing site-specific Favicons? I actually prefer the generic placeholder globes - I once read that Favicons always ‘phone home’. In Firefox you can fix this with an about:config setting.
UPDATE: I would still like to know if this option is possible in Brave; however, I have found a workaround by deleting and then using Kaspersky Internet Security’s Application Control to block Read/Create permissions to the files: favicons and favicons-journal. Of course, this does not stop Brave pinging sites in attempting to update the favicon.
