Windows firefox edition... I guess
« on: July 16, 2007, 10:00:28 PM »
I guess that is sort of what this program is like, anyways here goes. Ever heard of WinTabber? if not, it is a program that with it, you open a program, and then you can move it to wintabber, and the program will be removed from the task bar, and a new tab will be added to wintabber, much like firefox. let me post the link and a screenshot or two so you can understand what I am talking about.

WinTabber


notice how in the screenshot there is three servers running and a command promt running all in the same program.
(note~if you can't see the screenshot for some reason, let me know, and I will upload it to an image hosting site, I was just to lazy to do that right now)

another program that is similar to this: Jedi Window Dock. :)

Quote from: website
You can dock all your putty sessions together, put all of your instant message conversations on tabs, or perhaps you manage a ton of remote desktop sessions... All of these windows need not take up space on your taskbar any longer! Software Jedi to the rescue.

Any application, with the exception of console apps, can be docked. Some strange behavior has been reported with a couple of apps but it works fine for most.
After docking, you can right click the active tab and close the application - or undock it, which pops it out of the tabbed frame.

Those look really cool!

Can you put any program in there? Like, could I put... a Notepad, a Command Prompt, and a Directory Opus in there at the same time, if I wanted to?

Some apps might be a bit flaky if you try to dock it like this - somebody should give winamp or other skinned stuff a go. Interesting that WinTabber can handle console windows, perhaps I should give it a go... or just remember to launch console2 instead of cmd.exe :)

cool, another program to try!

edit: ok, does anyone have a copy of jedi window dock? I can't download the one off the site right now. When ever I try to extract it, it comes up with the damaged archive error.

edit again: ok, never mind, I finally got it to work, now I can test it out and see which is better.

Windows firefox edition... I guess

skinned it is. pictured here is gom player.
The only problem with wintabber is when you release the program from wintabber, you can't add it back to wintabber again untill you reopen the program that you added to wintabber.

just tested jedi window dock, gom player works with it too. I am going to do more testing with jedi window dock now and see how good it is.

I wonder if you can add either program into the other... (sorry, I don't want to actually download them for myself...)

yes, you can add wintabber into jedi window dock, and you can add jedi window dock into wintabber, but don't try to add the program on the outside to the tabbed program

I tried wintabber before, but as I recall, the programs that were open were then invisible to the alt+tab menu.

Is that actually true?  What about the Jedi program?

I suppose it's not really all that different from a taskbar in the first place, in some ways.  If I could just get that to act a bit more like Firefox tabs, that would be cool.

well yeah, its going to be hidden from alt+tab, it now shows up as wintabber in the alt+tab list. if you want to have access to the tabbed programs in wintabber like the alt+tab, you would use ctrl+tab.
