I know that putting the tabs on top was a way to save space, and you've managed greatly with that. Still, with the "App Firefox Button" a lot of space is available and in the current mock-ups, wasted. But that is useful when you need to drag the window, for example, I can see that. The thing that this post is about, is that a title, that is, the content of the page's <title> element, is missing. I can see how that could be scratched for saving space, but now there is plenty of space up there again. Not putting the title in the mock-ups might be a simple mistake, but if it's not, I ask you to consider putting it in there. This will have two advantages:

1. The whole title will most likely be seen, instead of tabs titles which have limited length.

2. Personally, I think it looks quite odd to not have something in-between the Firefox button and the other OS specific buttons (if there are any).

I see no issues with doing this, do you?
Adding myself since I'll be doing QA on this.
Al please check with Marco for any accessibility QA.

We've made great progress on the design mockups, but we are still very actively looking for people who are interested in contributing to the implementation.
