I use Chromium nightly portable builds. The most frequent glitch would be losing favicons. So I wrote this little brute force program to read a bookmarks.html file and load each link in multiples of 10, in the default browser. Every time it hits 10 it kills the browser and starts over so you don't end up with 200 open tabs.
It's a brute force but it works with default browser. It's called, strangely enough,
Bookmark Visit. You can download from this page: Faves Downloads
Basically you want to export your bookmarks to an .html file and set the browser with the favicon problem as the default browser, before running it.
There's a Readme included. Like all software on my site, it's free for you to use at your own risk.
