High Res Icon

Tim John 7 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 7 years ago 1

Hi,


Sidewise is great. My tab bar hasn't been this tidy for years!


One tiny request: could you add support for high resolution icons in the taskbar? The one that appears in Windows 7 is scaled up and pixelated (see image).


Thanks!

Unfortunately this pixelated-icon behavior seems to be a Chrome behavior that can't currently be changed.

Basically, whatever icon I give to Chrome as the "window's icon" gets resized to 16x16 by Chrome; and Chrome then uses that downsized version for the window's icon in the OS. So no matter what resolution icon I use, Chrome just downsizes it to 16x16 and we end up with a pixelated icon in the OS's taskbar.

Marking this as under review for later investigation, i.e. if/when Chrome changes this behavior.

I had a feeling that it may have been a Chrome limitation. Thanks for the info and quick response!
