   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.
