Cannot agree more.
I personally would also like to have option to hide "Start page" and "Snapshot" icons/buttons (and maybe even make validated certificate issuer name shorter, tooltip could be used) - I'd rather see full url than some never used buttons.
And no, I don't want to buy wider monitor
@stevencee if you haven't already I would enable the one-click keyboard shortcuts. Better usability imo. Press 0 or + (repeatedly if desired) to zoom in and then 6 to return immediately to 100%. Far easier than messing around with the icon.
Another vote to allow hiding/removing items from the toolbar. There are buttons in there that don't need to be always visible (like share, screenshot, favorites, etc...) all other browsers allow for this and it's making me wanna switch
