    A little trick that not many people know. Go to the page that you want to visit. In the upper left of the site address (just before https) you will see a small symbol. Drag that symbol to your desktop. It becomes an icon, (which you can change). You now have a shortcut to the site.

    I have a gmail account. I just tried it and the symbol is the small lock icon.
    I have never visited a site that did not have some type of symbol.
