Agreed, tabs won, therefore we need to implement it and this will be a
big step forward for usability of our tools. Not only for newcomers, for
us too. You will see sooner or later that tabbed windows are better than
full ones. I had such experience from VW and other VisualWorkers would
probably confirm that.

Ok, a right combo of both, tabbed and full. Say two browsers windows
with a reasonable amount of methods open in tabs. And adding back button
.. well that would be near nirvana considering current state :)
