Topic: site title regression

I prefer the "All messages" option over "Recent topics". As "Recent topics" has become the default, the site title for "All messages" has been changed to "All messages - rust-lang - Zulip" while before it was "rust-lang - Zulip". Because only "All me..." fits in the tab name, this means that all the zulip tabs for the different zulip instances look identical for me.

Wow, your browser shows that much title? I only get about 3-4 letters (but I pin Zulip)

I think they mean the browser title bar, not the tab title

I hide mine personally :shrug:

No, I meant the tab bar. Firefox hides the close button for all tabs except for the current tab which saves just enough space for showing this. With close button, it only shows at most 3 characters.

Wait until you see the Proton redesign :)

I just tried it and I completely agree. Even with the "compact" density the tab bar is anything but "compact".

Tree style tabs are great.

With chrome stylesheet you can hide the usual tab bar entirely giving extra vertical space to content too

as well you can change the text density, I favor 'compact' personally

@nagisa Does tree-style tabs offer any kind of autohide for the tab column?

And does it respect fullscreen?

Tab Center Redux which I sometimes use doesn't, but it has an easy shortcut to hide it

I've given up and just moved to panorama view to group tabs

view this post on Zulip oli (Mar 05 2021 at 18:52):

so I always see all tabs of the current group on top. No nice hierarchical structure, but I can't handle that anyway

@Josh Triplett It still shows up in fullscreen, you can quickly toggle it with f1

I don't know about autohide.

it would be nice if the title showed the instance before the channel name

view this post on Zulip Joshua Nelson (Mar 05 2021 at 19:39):

so "rust-lang - All messages - Zulip" instead of "All messages - rust-lang - Zulip"

That would be problematic if people have many tabs for the same instance, but if people keep only one tab for a given Zulip instance then yeah that'd be better.
