    I suggest amending the title to include “(2014)”.

      Nice catch. I wonder what happened to this proposal.

      edit: checked the pingbacks and it’s discussed recently here: https://pointieststick.com/2021/05/15/window-decorations-revisited-or-using-the-right-tool-for-the-job/

      I hate running recent GNOME apps on my system. I’ve never really minded the plethora of GUI toolkits on Linux; I’ve been around long enough that at one point I might have been running Xt, lesstif, Tk, FLTK, wx, Qt, and GTK+ apps at the same time, and other than a few with particularly stupid dropdown menus it never gave me any trouble.

      But up until recently I never had to deal with apps replacing the titlebar… well, except for Chrome, but the difference is that Chrome does it incredibly well and I only notice the difference on the rare occasion I want to “keep above others” a Chrome window, whereas the GNOME ones are from the goddamn moon.

        I mean it looks nice.. And I’d guess this is the next part in terms of integration between the Desktop and Applications. For me Windows was kind of the forerunner in this.

        Firefox on windows is kind of the same, the tabs are on the same height as the window controls, and it does definitely give you more vertical space. The downside is that every time I have to grab the window it is tricky to grab the space between the tab-bar and the window controls. Screenshot
