Description

7 years ago
With the "show the tabs" button having moved to the toolbar (rather than the old if less discoverable swipe-right gesture which I quite liked), it is somewhat difficult to create a new tab. Hitting the "show the tabs" button isn't too hard, but then I have to move my hand all the way to the bottom of the tab gutter to find the relatively small "+" button, which is right next to a bunch of destructive buttons (Android's Back and Home).

Some ideas:
* Move the "+" button to the top of the tab gutter.
* Alternately, make the big, black, easy-to-hit empty space in the gutter create a new tab.
* Or, more discoverably, put a placeholder "new tab" button--the same size and shape as a normal tab--below the real tabs. Most of the time--when there are only a few tabs--it would be pretty close to the "show the tabs" button.

(The third suggestion above doesn't work at all when you have so many tabs that you have to scroll.)
This ui will change in bug 685839.
Depends on: 685839
Keywords: ux-efficiency
This should be better now. I'm marking fixed. Feel free to open or file something new if you still have problems.
