With a recent Chrome update, I now have a switch person button next to the three standard Window Title Buttons that are used all the time:
- Minimize Window
- Restore Window
- Close Window
When Chrome is maximised this appears immediately between the 'new tab' and the 'minimise' buttons.
I have mis-clicked this button over and over again today, and I wonder, is it an acceptable user experience to place application specific buttons in this sacred area, which is always used for those same three actions?
Note: I'm not a desktop developer, so I know that Chrome may be hiding the Windows Title Bar entirely, and have replaced it with this faux-title bar, but the question is the same, because to the use that region with those three buttons is the same.
