Classes have icons depending on their type. The exception are tests
which have a bullet with the SUnit result color of the last run, or
gray if there is no data is available.

Methods have a green arrow pointing upwards if there is a super
implementation, and a green arrow pointing downwards if there are sub
implementations. You can click on these icons to see the hierarchy and
navigate to the actual implementations of these methods. If the method
is flagged a blue flag is displayed instead. If there is a breakpoint
a red flag is displayed instead. Finally, if this is a test method,
then a bullet with the SUnit result color is displayed.

Depending on what you have loaded in your image you might see
different icons. Packages can override #browserIcon and
#browserIcon:selector: to add custom icons for classes and methods.
Seaside for example does that.
