Rationale:
The 'Eye' icon can be easily confused with the Record media activity. It might be re-purposed generally for media controls, and the view controls moved to the activity sub-toolbar. --FGrose

Alternatively, more room on the Browse main toolbar could be achieved by providing a page sub-toolbar below.

Media toolbar

Browse page toolbar

This new composite toolbar would provide page-related controls, e.g., search, undo/redo, copy/paste, shrink/enlarge, full screen, show bookmarks.

  • It would do away with the 'Edit' toolbar that had the 'Cut' (scissors) as an icon (but no cut action).
  • The trigger for this is simply hover or alternate click. The outline down-arrow is a possible new hint for this behavior.
  • Standard click would Reload as normal.
