I don't object to the microscope, but I suppose a magnifying glass (🔎) could 
also work.

    Hi Everyone,
    We had this long-standing issue with the EWS bubbles that many engineers 
were confused whether a queue was build-only, test-only or build-and-test.
    For e.g.: https://webkit.org/b/152790
    Simon Fraser 2016-01-06: "From the EWS bubbles you can't tell if a bot is a 
build-only bot, or a build-and-test bot. All this time I've been assuming that 
GTK was running tests, and that assumption was wrong."
    To solve that, we recently added emojis in the status-bubbles. Builder 
queues will only have builder emoji, tester queues will only have tester emoji, 
and build-and-test queues will have both builder and tester emojis. Also, we 
have separated most of the build-and-test queues into separate builder queues 
and tester queues. These changes should help in clarifying which queue does 
what. The emojis we have used are:
    Builder: 🛠️ (https://emojipedia.org/hammer-and-wrench/)
    Tester: 🔬 (https://emojipedia.org/microscope/)
    The emoji for tester doesn't feel very appropriate, and I am curious to 
know if anyone has a better suggestion. I previously used 🧪 
(https://emojipedia.org/test-tube/), but this emoji was added to Unicode last 
year only, and older OSes don't have this emoji. So I switched to the current 
(microscope) emoji in https://webkit.org/b/201532.
    Please let me know if anyone has suggestions for better emojis. If not, 
atleast this email would let people know the purpose of these emojis.
