For vertical tabs mode, the new "Hide title bar" option is amazing, I just have a request: please make the buttons and the URL bar follow Fitts' Law when the window is maximized! The Minimize/Restore Down/Close buttons DO follow Fitts' Law, which is awesome, but the rest of the buttons don't :(  It just feels wrong that they don't, especially because when vertical tabs mode is off (A.K.A "normal" horizontal tabs), the tabs and buttons DO follow Fitt's Law. Please, please do this!!

To date they have not implemented Fitts' law in vertical guides
I already think that won't happen

Making back/forward/refresh follow Fitt's Law makes sense to me, but I'm less keen on extending the clicktarget for the omnibox to the top of the screen, as you can presently double-click in that tiny strip to exit maximized mode, you can drag the space to move the window, etc.

@ericlaw ya, you're probably right about the omnibox, but these other buttons click target should extend to the top edge of the screen too, not just Back/Forward/Refresh edge fitts law buttons.png
