This is a good point to discuss and I have posted to also.
I prefer separate windows because I can compare and proof
documents/sheets side by side and mouse focus in linux makes scrolling
without changing window focus possible. I would be disappointed if LO
went to tabs.

May be both options could be supported. The menu "File>Open" could be"
File>Open AS" tab or window. A bit like FF gives you the option.

Dear Team LibreOffice

Firstly I congratulate you for establishing your new company and for
the tremendous efforts you make to improve Libreoffice.
I am a Moroccan engineer who uses free software that makes a lot of
time and openoffice, before the onset of LIbreOffice, was one of the
solutions I have adopted to carry out my work at the office or at home.

My suggestion is to have Libreoffice writer with tabs, for example I
hope that when I open a new document I will not have a new window, but
rather a new tab in the same window.

I ask you to consider my request, because I see with this method there
will be a good ergonomics and greater visibility.
