Reproducibility: Happens every time

Currently, when working with git branches in Netbeans, you can see the current branch by hovering over the top level of the code tree.   It would be nice if the current branch name was also appended to the window title in the same way the project name is, or in parentheses after the project name node in the code tree.  I've been caught out by being forgetful in the past and not realised which branch I was on.   This would make it more obvious and help reduce the human error.
