Hmm yes you're right.

But I think we should at some point do some "hotness" highlighting, in the 
tabs, as well as in the document-view. We should implement some algorithm 
that takes into account how much the user has edited a document during the 
last time, and how much he has watched a document, calculate according 
highlighting-colors, and add a one-click way to close documents from within 
the document-view.Then you could easily close all the dangling documents you 
have just taken a short peek into, without doing too much thinking, and you 
wouldn't lose the overview all that fast(Would help our scalability thing ;)

greetings, David
