    I digged that systray and its icons got slim with their margins and now I could get them to take more vertical space in the panel, which I set to the minimum height.

    I wish all widgets could get the same, so that K icon in kickoff and, way specially, the ones in taskbar-icons-only could be bigger there (or, also, perhaps I could make panel smaller with fonts set to 144dpi).

      Also, have the option for not grouping windows (then display the entries beside the one they’d group to)! 👍

        I know. Simply navigate and run an application when the application icon is displayed (Angry Birds or Curse Client (Curse.com)). I think it’s easier.

        Sorry, I in fact messed up a bit by making this an answer to that Google Apps related question (it just reminded me of this missing option I mentioned ‚cause – at least I guess – they share some roots: grouping Chrome windows).

        But I meant that I miss not grouping windows at all with icons-only taskbar, for any application, not just Chrome’s.

        As this taskbar (mine, at least) is hardly fully filled, I wanted to be able to reach any subwindow (of any class) by the one click, as we’re able with regular taskbar.
