We’ve improved icons on start.me

In the previous weeks we’ve done some work in the background to improve the bookmark icons on start.me.

The main improvements are:

  • Icons are now loaded faster. On average we’ve been able to reduce the loading times for all icons on a page by almost 185ms. We’re continuing to focus on improving the overall loading speed of start.me and this is another step in the right direction.
  • For thousands of websites we have improved the quality of the icon. Even if you choose the “large” or “extra large” view, the icons remain sharp.
  • All the custom icons that you’ve uploaded are now available in the “Your icons” tab in the “Select Icon” dialog. This makes it much easier to reuse custom icons for multiple websites.

Stay tuned as we continue to work on improving the start.me product.
