window groups


please implement window groups in a way as Firefox does currently. It is very useful.

E.g. I have multiple issues. It would be great to be able to group tabs in a windows and name them. E.g. SD-2144, SD-4495, ... and be able to switch from one to other easily.

This will prevent cluttering too many files, space will be much more, ...

You may want to try Perspectives plugin in Plugin Portal...

ahh yes, thank you so much. 

Doesn't Netbeans plan to implement native support for this useful feature ?
Comment 3 vgrigory 2012-11-26 13:06:30 UTC
it lacks some tools, e.g. right clicking on tab and being able to move it to a new group... Firefox did this job pretty well. I think it worth supporting this completely and natively :)

No such plans in the near future.
Patch is welcome though:)
