It's displayed vaguely lighter, but when you have lots of tabs open (15+ is normal, for me), it's barely noticeable.

The "dumb Win10 default settings" have never been a problem for me (although I think "dumb" is a far too forgiving word, so you're probably a much nicer person than I am).  I hack the cr@p out of the registry, to get rid of them.

But it's so bloody illogical, is what gets me.  The tab is part of the page -- in the real world, it is physically part of the page -- so attaching it to an address bar makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, and is completely unintuitive.

It makes it into just a horizontal row of buttons that switch between pages that are somewhere else in the window, which is most certainly not good UX -- if you insist on having such buttons, at least align them vertically.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
