Window-top Tabs
Authored by: lullabud on Apr 13, '09 12:06:57PM

I think window-edge tabs are a great idea. I know they aren't the norm, but thinking in best practices I think it works best...

Consider the ability to tab multiple applications together, so you have one chat window, one safari window, one terminal window. How else would you do it? You'd have to have the window on the border of the window in order to have spatial cues as to the separation between apps.

Also, it makes more sense from a real-world file folder sense, that's how we see folders in drawers. I think it just makes spatial sense to have tabs on the border of the window.
