Description

I think it would be a great additon if we add the Web+ Tabs into Deskbar, so we could choose the wanted tab a more direct way.

That's not really going to be feasible any time soon, as it'd require major changes to both how Deskbar works, and probably some of the system APIs ; right now Deskbar enumerates the list of running apps, and then enumerates the window list for each app. The app itself has absolutely no influence on this process, nor can it define the actions taken as a result of the user's selection.

Probably a better solution would be the use stack&tiling. Which isn't ready for that yet either...

I actually like the two tab levels we currently have. It allows stacking windows with thematically grouped tabs. I find that so much more convenient than on other platforms.

Agreed, I generally see S&T as a complement to normal intra-window tabs, not as a replacement.

In any case, getting those tabs into the Deskbar would be nice, though :-)

The way I see it, we could have deskbar group windows by S&T groups instead of by application.

That being said, we need to improve our decorators before this can work nicely. At the very least we should have an API for attaching an icon to a window, and have DeskBar show it. We also need to better manage stacked groups with lots of windows (with a popup window list maybe) and a few other similar features.
