Bug Description

 The Scale plugin is one of the most used , and I want to point out a usability issue with it , that can be fixed in 5 minutes : when too many windows are open (and all are webpages or whatever else similar windows) they become too small ,and the contents can't be distinguished .

The solution : show icons (it's an existant option) in the bottom right corner of the windows by default . Also showing the titles is relevant , but there is already a bug submitted for that .

Sry ,for double-posting , but I wanted to mention that there were already at least two discussions on ayatana about Scale . The last one (two-three days ago ) held this idea and there were I think at least two people pro ,and none against it (as in - not much activity , but general consesus in the discussion ) .
