There are times when you might wanna use text characters or emojis instead of favicons. Especially in these situations, it can be pretty handy:
When the bookmark doesn’t have an icon at all,
When the bookmark is hard to read,
When you have a bunch of bookmarks to the same website and they all have the same icons.
Text or emoji
The text-based options you have are:
A single emoji, or
1-3 text characters
💡 Please note that combining text and emoji is not possible.
How to add text or emoji

Change the dropdown value from image to text

A background color is mandatory, and you can pick your desired color. Based on the luminosity of the background, the text color will automatically be set to black or white.
