What visual cue is available to show that Safari 14.1's tab bar is scrollable?

I understand that I can scroll it when there are too many tabs to fit. Other than trying to scroll it and looking to see whether or not it scrolls, how can I tell whether it is scrollable?

In some cases, the last visible tab may be partially covered, so that's a tiny cue. In other cases, if the windows size is "just wrong", all visible tabs are fully rendered.

Is there a cue I'm missing? Is there a cue I can enable? Is there an extension that would provide a cue?

  • You mean other than they're squished up at one end & you can't read them all? e.g. i.sstatic.net/SyovD.png

  • Wow. That's subtle. Check out the two tabs with star icons on the right. imgur.com/a/mEXNpBC. The difference between star #1 and star #2 must be the "squished up" Tetsujin references. Looks like that's the visual cue. If you'll post that as an answer, I'll accept it. Commented Jun 12, 2021 at 18:49
  • Ah, I don't use pinned min-tabs with icons… can't tell them apart, so mine is a lot less subtle a cue than that

From comments…

They do scrunch up at one end - though it's not exactly the clearest visual cue as everything is in shades of mid-grey

Extract of OP's use-case with mini-icons - probably makes it even harder to see…
