23 * @class FavIconRequestJob faviconrequestjob.h <KIO/FavIconRequestJob>
24 *
25 * FavIconRequestJob handles the retrieval of a favicon (either from the local cache or from the internet)
26 *
27 * For instance, the icon for http://www.google.com exists at http://www.google.com/favicon.ico
28 * This job will (the first time) download the favicon, and make it available as a local PNG
29 * for fast lookups afterwards.
30 *
31 * Usage:
32 * Create a FavIconRequestJob, connect to result(KJob *), and from there use iconFile().
33 *
34 * @code
35 * // Let's say we want to show the icon for QUrl m_url
36 * KIO::FavIconRequestJob *job = new KIO::FavIconRequestJob(m_url);
37 * connect(job, &KIO::FavIconRequestJob::result, this, [job, this](KJob *){
38 * if (!job->error()) {
39 * // show the icon using QIcon(job->iconFile())
40 * }
41 * });
42 * @endcode
43 *
44 * For a given HTTP URL, you can find out if a favicon is available by calling KIO::favIconForUrl() in KIOCore.
45 * It is however not necessary to check this first, FavIconRequestJob will do this
46 * first and emit result right away if a cached icon is available and not too old.
47 *
48 * In Web Browsers, additional information exists: the HTML for a given page can
49 * specify something like
50 * &lt;link rel="shortcut icon" href="another_favicon.ico" /&gt;
51 * To handle this, call job->setIconUrl(iconUrl).
52 * (KParts-based web engines use the signal BrowserExtension::setIconUrl to call back
53 * into the web browser application, which should then call this).
54 * The signal urlIconChanged will be emitted once the icon has been downloaded.
55 *
56 * The on-disk cache is shared between processes.
57 *
58 * @since 5.19
