    Dragging tab to the left or right edge of a window is priceless!
    I would expect such windows management from OS though… Vista? 7? :-\

    Well, if you drag a window to the right or left side in Win 7, it resizes it to fit 50% of your screen. So you can use/compare 2 windows at the same time.

    The side-by-side thing just looks like two windows. That is, nothing “special” per-se (other than being a unique[?] feature) that could just as well be left up to the WM, as pointed out by Fatal.
    Would perhaps be better if the controls were shared and you could focus a specific “window”?
