Wow, that's very interesting Alexandre.
GIMP could definitely learn from that -- for example, a quick
improvement that could be made to DockBooks is, bringing a tab to the
front as it's moused-over (with some minimum hover time before
switching to prevent accidents.)
I'd rather not have that kind of "auto-raise", but there's a Firefox
extension named "Tab Scope" that shows previews (pop-up thumbnails) of
a tab when the tab is moused over. That is very useful.
