I’m experimenting with detachable tab groups in Tabs Studio. It’s extremely brittle and limited, but some things work:
It might be useful in multi-monitor setup. I don’t have personal experience with multi-monitor environment. Listening to the buzz about floating code windows in Visual Studio 2010, I hear that some say how cool it is and some say they can successfully utilize their multiple monitors with Visual Studio 2008 already.
What do you think about the floating tab groups in Visual Studio 2008 idea?
