Version: unspecified → Trunk
Since there's a dropdown icon for the search bar button, I think there should be a dropdown icon for site button for consistency reasons even if it's not a menu. If there's no dropdown icon, nothing indicates that this is a button.

Ever confirmed: true
Created attachment 307361 [details] Mockup of suggestion The icon is shifted 2 pixels to the left, and the button is 4 pixels larger to make room for the dropdown icon (I used the same values as the search bar button).

Could you explain what you mean by "consistency reasons"? The search button allows you to drop down a list of items from which a user may choose a search engine. The site identity button shows more information about the current connection to the web site. Should we also have drop down markers on bookmark toolbar folders for consistency? Should we have a drop down on the star button for consistency? I'll accept arguments that the site button doesn't look "pushable" enough, and isn't offering a button-like affordance, but I can't really see a consistency argument here, as drop-down indicators are used to show that there is a set of options to choose from, not that the resulting UI will appear beneath the button. > If there's no dropdown icon, nothing indicates that this is a button. Then we need to make it look more like a button.
I discussed about that with alex : > ((faaborg)) so I guess really I just want the site button and search button to look the same > ((D-Away)) same for me :) > ((faaborg)) because that would look nice, rational thinking aside I think you're right, and the site button should really look like a button.

I think this has more to do with visual consistency as opposed to interactive consistency. The difference between menu items and the more information button seems a little subtle. Overall I don't have much of a case. Making the button have more of a button affordance sounds like a good idea.
