What does the "bell" icon do?

Inserita

When you press the number in the upper right hand corner, you're shown a gray screen with 3 options at the top - i understand the mask for private browsing, the sync icon for syncing, but why the bell icon?


It's the 1st on the top left - i guess it means home or awesome screen? And why's it a bell???


Thanks for any illumination you can provide!

Ah that's not a bell, it's a smaller, somewhat stylized image of a tab. If you look at the address bar below, you'll see a similar sort of curve on the right had side. If you look at the upcoming redesign of tabs in Firefox, you'll also see that same curvy shape.

Hello,

Thanks so much for the response! I realize this is sort of a silly question, but it's driving me crazy.

I realize that the "bell" icon provides a thumbnail view of my open tabs (I'm talking about the bell-shaped icon, located on the top left side of the app in the attached screenshot).

But why is it shaped like a bell?? Or is it not a bell at all?

It's just a bit of an odd design, in my very humble opinion -- it looks like it should be doing something. Maybe a grid might be a better icon to use for this?

Or maybe I'm just totally not getting it lol

Thanks again for your help!
