We’ve all had this happen—in fact, it’s probably happening on your web browser right now, and it probably happens all the time. You have so many tabs open than you can’t quickly find the tab you need.

Safari 12 in macOS Mojave has a new feature that displays favicons—icons (usually a logo) that represent a website—right in the tab itself. You can now find the tab you want with a simple glance.

This actually isn't as bad as it can get, but you get the idea: Too many tabs open, making it difficult to discern the webpage you want.
