Not a bug, but would be nice if we can have the active tab highlighted (like in Firefox, where they have a blue line). Currently in dark mode they are both similar shades of grey which is quite hard to see if you have lots of similar tabs open on a dimly lit display.

In incognito mode the same thing happens, with many tabs it is very difficult to locate the active one. Thank you

@ch6410 My pleasure :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

While we're at it, the selected tab highlight color when the window isn't active is near identical to non-selected tabs.

Almost all of these fail the WCAG 2 standards for color contrast in UI elements & text: https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/

@Somali-Pirate, that's a good suggestion.  I will bring this up to the team.  

@Eric_MS Thanks :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:
