HTML navigator

Within NB 7.3 HTML update, Netbeans started to show active html node opening tag if it does not fit in view port.

Please see "HTML navigator" navigator attachment to see what exactly I have in mind. This feature is very useful when you have to maintain old and ugly code with random code indents... 

I bet you know you did a great work created adding this feature :)

it would be great to have similar feature, when project name is visible in/on projects tab title. In cases I have to work with 5 projects made on the same CMS, its gets difficult not to start fixing wrong code. And I bent I'm not the only one.

Even better addition would be if it would be possible to add some sort of drop down with list of projects (and/or favorite folders) to fast scroll to any project.

Attaching sidebar idea, if that makes things clearer.
