> I've tinkered with Browse on an XO-1 to fake the extra home and tab button so we are looking at our most likely common usage environment (as XO-1/1.5 folks upgrade Sugar). The stop button does not fall off the end in this case, though the search field is much smaller than I'd like to be honest. As an emergency stop gap before we can code the reload/stop icon to move into the URL input location (as per the clear icon in Sugar search fields), it is at least a feasible option.

> Note: I think Lucian mentioned he might be considering making the add new tab  icon into a sub toolbar reveal, so that he has space for the add, remove, next, last tab features (see Terminal for the example tab control use case). If he is really considering this soon ;) then it might be better to move the add new tab icon over to where I have placed the go-home icon, and move the go-home icon over to where the add tab icon is placed (so the primary toolbar icons with sub-toolbars are all together on the left).

I'd swap them anyway, Home makes sense to be next to Back/Forward.
However, I'm really not satisfied with the amount of space left for
the URL bar. I could maybe add reload and home in a toolbar, or add a
small stop/reload button inside the URL bar (but I'm not sure such
useful features should be hidden so well).
