Did you notice that, if you save bookmarks as icons to the Home screen, under 2.2 the icons will look like the site's favicon (if available) instead of them all being the same? Oh yeah!!

Mine look like a snapshot of the web page (as they did before) and not like the Favicon.

You're right. It is not a favicon.

There is an Apple article here that explains what it is, but it seems like a much more complicated process than I realized.

To see an example of an icon like that, try adding to your Home screen.
