[Solved]New button in sidebar, doesn't seem to do anything?

  • Located above the sidebar options, it looks like a tab or window stack button, however when interacting with it (click, double click, right click, hover) it doesn't seem to do anything other than just change color on hover.

    Did this happen in the last update? I can't seem to find it being mentioned in it. What is it? How does it work?

  • Looks like an extension button, don't know which one ...

  • Hm, this is interesting. I did a fresh install on a new user account to see if it is a new update and it wasn't there.

    I don't believe that it is an extension icon as all the extensions are at the bottom of the sidebar (scrolled all the way down) and this one persists outside of the scrollable area above the sidebar options menu.

    It can also change color accordingly with the browser's color accents, so I don't believe it could be an extension as I have not seen an extension that have the ability to match the icon to the browser's color accent.

  • @sgunhouse D'oh, I didn't read it as carefully. Turns out they are the new limiter indicators depending on what you have enabled from GX Control.

    Top to bottom: Network, RAM, CPU
