UI Change suggestion

Could the pinned tab icon be made a tad smaller and moved to the left of the favicon in the list? This would leave more space for the tab title and popup buttons. The only problem I can see is tabs which are the root of a tree need space for the twiddler.

Or maybe there's another way of highlighting them - by (configurable) background colour? Favicon overlay of a pin? Would the new 'pin tab' button allow for 2 states, so it shows only when hovered over?

I'm really looking forward to seeing the new buttons, but my biggest worry is that I keep Sidewise quite narrow, and so actually clicking on a tab once all the buttons that I'd want appear might be tricky


Hmm ... what about making the pinned icon an "overlay icon" on top of the favicon?

Kinda like this: overlay example 


It loses visibility and is detrimental to usability. The current design is logical.

However, if you want to accommodate for small-horizontal-width users, I suppose that could be an _option_, or perhaps is triggered automatically whenever the sidebar becomes too small.

Yeah, that's what I meant by Favicon overlay of a pin. But I'm not sure it's the best option - favicons are too varied to be sure it would work I think...
