Latest ea update introduced tabs in app, that in my opinion are "bad" to look at. Viewing to some apps like piepmatz or pingviini we can see icons in tabs instead of words, do a much pleasant job, and they uses the same amount of space for a tab, contrary to words, so it would be nice (as the title says) to have icons instead of words.

Agree with all except for the "really horrible". But vote up anyways :) because icons are good: no need for translation, looks good, faster to see what is it all about without having to need to read etc

If you do text right (size font colour) its much more pleasing/minimalistic.

@lumen: But only if the icons are chosen wisely. They should be self-explaining and not ambiguous. Otherwise it could be even worse than words. Sometimes I don't know what an icon means and then have to look for a tooltip which doesn't always exist.
