By implementation, this script should have no control on the page icons of browser bookmarks.

How to change the colors

Use those predifined varibles:

white_color
dark_color
black_color

white_background
dark_background
black_background
transparent_background

to replace the two arguments inside the function in the right side of the euqal sign at the end of this script:

document.head.querySelector('[rel="icon"]').href =
    getSVGDataURL( white_color, transparent_background );

And done.


For example, if we want black color and white background:

document.head.querySelector('[rel="icon"]').href =
    getSVGDataURL( black_color, white_background );
