The new tab design doesn’t clearly indicate which tab is active/focused. This is a critical feature for me. All versions of Chrome and derivatives have indicated which tab is active with visual contrast/highlights and often other obvious distinctions, like the ‘stacked tabs’ appearance.
For pinned tabs, there is no indication whatsoever.
For unpinned tabs, there’s the tiny close button to the right of the title.
It’s necessary (as in, I’d have to switch browsers if I can’t solve this) to know which tab I’m in:
- to quickly detach a tab
- to switch to the tab you want
- to know which tabs to close
How can this issue be reproduced?
- open multiple tabs
- pin some of them
- place bets on which tab is active
obvious visual indication of active tab (highlighted/bolded text, contrast in tab color, etc)
v1.62.156 dark mode
Guest profile works normally with its dark purple color scheme so maybe this is an issue with dark mode? Didn’t test light mode as it seems to require a restart.
