Hi.
This is a good point to discuss and I have posted to

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.
Shouldn't be a problem as long as it worked similarly to Firefox...
meaning, it uses tabs but does not preclude the use of separate windows.
So, you should be able to drag a tab to a new window, or vice-versa...

Best of both worlds...

I am sure it can be done where the tab usage is done as a general setup as alot of the major 
browsers today use tabs.

From an end-user perspective, I think tabs would be a big success for us. They are an obvious, 
immediate difference from our biggest competitor and something that a lot of users have asked for 
over the years. They're also easy to use, since web browsers have trained users what to expect.

I'd like to see LibreOffice implement tabs, too.
