Why are there no tabs in gmpc?

The main reason is simple: I don't like tabs in gmpc.

But a more detailed summary:

  • Most screens today are wide enough to have a side bar.
  • A tabbed window does not scale. if you have a larger number of browsers you either don't see the name of the browser (they are ellipsized to make all the tabs fit) or you have to scroll (or open a dropdown menu) to get to all the items, defeating the purpose of a tabbed view. So you still need large window width to be useful.

Showing the width of tabs (in example buttons) is too small with several windows open: [click here]

Because people don't see the above reasons as valid, I implemented the button (almost tabs). You can enable it by choosing Preferences->Interface->Show buttons in collapsed mode.
