Posted image example screen shot
Noticed this while testing selection - pages with no title tend to blend together into identical tiles in the recent lists. 

In the screen shot, the top two http://www.mathies.com/m... entries point to two different test pages on my site, and the google link below those represents an individual search.

I couple suggestions - 

1) shorten urls by clipping off text like "http://" and "www."
2) when selecting one of these tiles, fill the address bar with the full url similar to the awesome bar in desktop.

Discussed at the meeting today. We need better discovery for sites from the same domain.

Some current issues:

1) long page titles are being clipped
2) urls are clipped on the right
3) urls currently display the protocol
..

Asa, what do you want to do here? Or do you want to cut this from v1 and move it to v2?

Yuan will look into this and we'll see if we can't get it better for v2.
