I agree with other reviewers here. The extension is a great idea, but there is so much wasted space. I just took a few measurements: - On my 16" MacBook Pro using slightly larger than default fonts, the side panel itself takes up 35% of the total browser width. That's my start point for how much real estate is lost. - Within the side panel, the unnecessary drop-down at the top to change from SideTab Pro to Reading List etc and the search bar, plus the borders and padding waste 20% both vertically and horizontally. Doing a little geometry here I'm calculating 36% side panel wasted. So to sum up, I'm giving up 35% of my total browser capacity to start, and within that allocated space it is only 64% efficient. I could easily net back a total 10% more total browser side if we had some means to control the layout and sizing better. In Firefox you used to able to user-chrome.css this stuff by hand if you had to (that's what I used to do with side tab pro there). Does Chrome dev really make it impossible to control these UI elements?

Best vertical tab manager so far! A few suggestions: 1. Allow hiding the search box to save more screen space for the tabs. The gears icon currently in the search box can be moved to the pinned tab row. 2. Make the scroll bars dynamic, i.e. only show scroll bars when they are needed, to save more space for the vertical tabs. 3. It would be fantastic if you can provide the ability to narrow down the inner paddings of Chrome's side panel! They are currently too thick. Thanks!
