Argh: why do we need as much padding in the tab bar as in 0.9.8? In fact, why isn't the tab bar just like all the other bars - it could look fairly similar to the personal toolbar, but still distinct. Or why not use sidebar tabs (which are small, at least in modern) for tabs? It's just really annoying that the tab bar chops out a cm of real estate!
