It would be cool if there were two types of toolbars which could co-exist: large and small toolbars. Their size could be set per-toolbar, making all toolbars a generic type with large/small properties. This would also be nice for application builders/Mozilla embedders to use from the Phoenix toolkit as a generic widget.

If all toolbars (including the tab toolbar) were inherited from the same class, it would probably be easier to add support for grippies and "tearable" toolbars, and other useful features becoming common UI. Of course, talking about it is easy, I don't know how hard it is to do to wrap all that stuff in XUL...

By the way, I must say I switched between Mozilla and IE back and forth for two years... After using Phoenix 0.1 and now especially 0.2, I am totally hooked on Phoenix! (whoa... slogan anyone? ;) Beautiful work, I have never been more fond of a browser, everything is just so easy to do and so damn "right".
