Description:
When creating or editing connections, there is no way to specify colours to a connection, making it difficult to distinguish important ones from the rest.

Also, when having multiple connections tabs open (from the same DB or different ones), they are all the same colour, also making it difficult to distinguish important ones from the rest.

How to repeat:
1. Create two different connections. They are coloured the same.
2. Open both connections. Their tabs are coloured the same.

Suggested fix:
When creating or editing connections, it would be very handy to be able to specify a given background colour to a connection. ie. Red background coluor for a production DB connection.

When opening the connection, the connection tab would be coloured to the previously selected colour.
