Ok, so, conclusion :

- Remove bold font
- Add icon
- Reduce size of tab

About the use of a tab widget, this will prevent the possibility to
have full size tabs, because there is a QSpacerItem at the right of
the tab bar, so it couldn't take the entire horizontal space. IIRC, it
is however possible to have a tab bar which takes 66% of the
horizontal size with this solution. Is this could be satisfying ?
