There appears to be a very narrow column to the left of the reading status column:

While we're on the subject of trivial details:

1. Should the leftmost thin vertical column divider line exist? It seems a bit jarring to have a bold divider for the facet, then have a very thin divider appear adjacent to it.

2. Should the horizontal bar along the top of the column divider exist? It's a different color from the divider above it (which draws unnecessary attention to that horizontal line), and it's also a different width from what appears on the left (facet) side.

I'm not a graphic designer and I don't have an artistic bone in my body. Perhaps someone with actual experience and talent could consider whether a mockup like this might happen to be more aesthetic?

Thanks for your consideration! I'm confident that the team cares about attention to detail, and puts a lot of love into the user experience!

Thanks, David.  Phew.  Another acronym gleaned.

I can attest that there are a number of UI "polish" issues on macOS.

In my screenshot, I don't like the misalignment (1) of the locator bar with both the main resource toolbar and the dark line underneath (2). Opening and closing the sidebar reduces this gap by approx. 50%. The thing that bothers me more, however, is the difference in line color (3 vs. 4), when program scaling is <100%.

As much as I'd like this to be fixed, there are bigger issues that should most definitely take priority.

Thanks, Graham. None of the issues are present on Windows!

Hoping the devs can tweak the Mac library details to look as good.
