Major Topics for This Week
- Tabs Tray UI Refresh
- We have been working on the UX of the Tabs Tray, moving from Spinner+Tabs to Spiiners everywhere to IconTabs everywhere. Ian and Sriram are wrapping up the changes and we should be landing soon on Nightly. These will need to be uplifted to complete the Private Browsing UI work. There are a few UX tweaks related to the PB/Tabs interaction too.
