O-menu history improvements

The browser got a list of recently closed tabs and windows in History menu item. The list is global. No matter from which window you will access the menu, it will contain the same list of tabs. This is especially useful when you know that you have closed a tab but can’t remember from which window.

Closed windows are now easier to spot. Closing the entire window with multiple tabs open will place all tabs as a single entry in the history menu. If you close a window with 8 tabs, you can later reopen them all under "8 Tabs – Window".

Private mode

The private mode tab now comes with a light theme and a dark address bar. It also got a new icon, "a faceless person with glasses and a hat".Dev49 Private Browsing 1240x775
