nice extension Duplicate Tab which can also merge more windows to one, I feel
the differencies between windows and tabs are only these:
1. all tabs have the same window size
2. they are displayed at the same area on the screen, only one is visible at
3. you have only one record in a system window list for the whole set of tabs,
all manipulations with an order of tabs etc. is done in the "parent window",
not in the system itself
And that's all. If you change window-local property, it will be usualy changed
in one tab only - there are specialy mentioned exceptions when not (for example
window size :-) ).
If I look at these three points, I think normal window splitting with some
setting to show only of them at each time is very near to "tabs" - all you need
to full feeling of (Firefox) tabs is to write names of all windows/tabs to
status line. That's all.
Am I missed something? Or do you plan vim tabs will do something more than tabs
in Opera, Firefox, KDE shell Konsole etc. ?
