Native Sql Server Management Studio connection dialog allows you to choose the color of the status bar, when initiating new connecting to the database, however, this color remains
permanent even if your connection changes. SSMSBoost solves this problem: when adding Preferred Connection
you can specify an appropriate color for SERVER or SERVER/DATABASE.
SSMSBoost will tracks then connection changes and applies most specific matching color to the status bar. Most common usage can be "Red" status bar for your live system and "Green"
for test database.
