Shadows in the upper rows of the site-miniatures.
It is a small thing but still a great improvement. Reduces the visual complexity of all these small images, looks great, works especially well when the browser window size is changed and fits well into the os x design concept (the use of shadows). Would love to see apple do it.

it should be consistent : all rows, not just top ones. Also, the shadow should have the same opacity as the already-present page-curl shadow.

i'm more interested in Apple making a Top Sites feature that actually works and does not render Safari useless for up to 1 minute.

Hey, great to get a reply on this. Well, the shadows are virtually coming from the the "row on top" and the first row just has nothing in front of it. Also the dropshadow would interfere (it really looks wrong)-

I made the shadows looking a bit like the dropshadows from the windows. Had to write that last word ... Please can you tell me which the page-curl shadow is your are talking about? Thanks.

That's an interesting suggestion. I favor the way that it is currently though.

I believe that they are meant to be shown on the same virtual plane. Meaning that it's supposed to give the appearance of a "wall" of webpages in front of the user.
