I'll try and make it movable and dockable just like the main toolbar is, but that is no guarantee. Screenshots: Old traditional tab interface: http://openwall.info/wiki/_detail/people/shinnok/johnny/johnny-gnome-unity-2.png?id=john%3AGUI&cache=cache http://openwall.info/wiki/_detail/people/shinnok/johnny/johnny-gnome-unity-2.png?id=john%3AGUI&cache=cache New tab interface: http://trunk.shinnok.com/johnny/johnny-new-tab-interface-1.png http://trunk.shinnok.com/johnny/johnny-new-tab-interface-2.png This new approach takes away some of the bulkiness and complexity that the traditional tab interface inflicts and makes it more user friendly and warm feeling for new inexperienced users, while still adhering to the same rule that everything should be accessible for the experienced users at no more then on click or keyboard shortcut. Also this new approach makes options and settings embedding easier, thus taking the need for a preferences menu and dialog irrelevant. Hashes and Passwords pages have been merged into a single one called Passwords, since it doesn't really make sense to have two separate pages. Single, Wordlist and Bruteforce tabs have been merged into a single one called Options, that use stacked widgets to switch between them. What do you think? Suggestions are highly regarded too. Regards, Shinnok
