Personally, i'm all for modeling it after how firefox does tabs. Any
developers reading this? If so, how hard would it be to get implemented?

Just my thoughts,

Hi Libre Office development mailing list readers!

I think tabs would be a great idea!

The advantages of tabs are:

- Saving of task bar/list space
- Avoiding of context switching between different windows -->  Mor fluid
work flow

The disadvantages:

- One single window is not the best for multi screen situations

But this could be easily fixed by opening of more instances of LibO.

An issue which should be addressed is the implemtation in the whole suite:

  It could be like this:

  Tabs for the different documents

  Tabs for the different spreadsheets (One Calc document)
  Tabs for the different tables (Like the one allready exists)

  Tabs for the different slideshows

  Tabs for the different drawings

  Tabs for the different data bases

  Tabs for the different math sheets

  And look like this:

  Title bar
  Menu bar
  Icon bar
  Tabs for different documents, ...
    Tabs for different tables (in Calc)
  Status bar
