Snapshot – Draggable tab bar, favicons in the address bar and spatial navigation improvements

Today’s build includes two nice changes to the tab bar, favicon support in the address bar dropdown, spatial navigation improvements and Windows installer fixes.

It’s still holidays here, with quite a few people away enjoying the sun. Nonetheless we have some nice fixes for you.

Tab bar improvements

A lot of you complained that it was impossible to drag the window on the tab bar. We hence spent some time fixing this for you. On the downside this means that middle clicking on the tab bar to open a new tab does not work anymore for now. We will look at finding a way for both of these possibilities to work together again. In the mean time we feel that this is a more sensible default. Another change to the tab bar is that the gap above tabs when the window is maximized can be removed in settings, which enables you to switch tabs more easily by just throwing your mouse all the way to the top. This used to be tied to disabled tab stacking, but we now made those two settings independent, so that it works for everyone!

Address field favicons

In the address bar drop drop down, we have added in favicon support, making it a little easier to locate correct URL, with just a quick glance!
