I agree that the volume widget is not quite obvious to find because it doesn't really look like a volume knob. Neither does the icon inside look like a loadspeaker to me. It looks more like a rotated waffle with a scoop of ice scream. Once recognized it's easy to use though. And combining it with a mute button is not a bad idea. And to be fair, in all the announcements, the new toolbar is highlighted as experimental and user feedback is sought: "These include a new main toolbar and a rewritten and much simpler file browser. These parts are brand new and based on user feedback, and they will change and improve over the next few releases. The old slim toolbar is still available should you prefer that, but we encourage you to try out the new toolbar and tell us what you think." Cheers, Carsten (who always uses global shortcuts (Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Up/Down) to control the volume)
