hilighting in the context browser could be a nice addition for all
filters, but having a single filter for all places would be bad. or did
you mean the upper filter becomes "global" filter and other filters stay
in place ? if so, it could be pretty confusing if something is entered
in two filter fields.
i suppose "group by", age filter and other stuff from the collection
browser is just not included for now, not suggested for removal, right ?
playing track marking was pretty hard to notice at first - and it seems
that it takes already precious horizontal space in the playlist.
i don't like the main toolbar - but not because of the look or
something, but because it takes so much space without giving any
functionality or information in those spaces.
overall i am slightly surprised that i like such a layout ;)
hmm, about that main toolbar... i think i understood why i would prefer
it being at the bottom - my taskbar is at the bottom, so whenever i
switch to amarok my cursor is already near all the main controls. if it
was at the top, that would require moving across whole desktop.
