FireFox-esque Tabs
 
One thing that I've fallen in love with due to firefox is the autoscroll mouse-wheel click closes tabs. I've gotten so in the habit of doing it that I try to close application tabs using the same button. It would be nice to define such a thing in the new CMUD as well in order to close other mud tabs or an editor tab.

Yep, now that I'm using Firefox all the time too I'm getting the same ideas :)

In the first release of CMUD you'll still get the standard tabs. But improving the tabbed and docking interface is early on the list for the beta period improvements. Firefox is a great inspiration!

Another thing I'd like to see (sort of tab related) is the ability to choose whether or not a tab (or window) should be reachable by using CTRL-TAB. As ZMud is now I often have to CTRL-TAB through 6-7 windows before reaching the one I actually wanted to see even though I only have two windows that I actually want to be able to CTRL-TAB to.

Have you tried using Ctrl-N instead of Ctrl-Tab? As a standard Windows function, Ctrl-Tab will always cycle between *all* of the windows...that's it's function and changing this would make CMUD a non-standard Windows application.

But there has always been the Ctrl-N (Next) key which only cycles between the main MUD windows and not any of windows like the settings editor or mapper. And certainly I can see adding an option to make a window skip the Ctrl-N cycle.

Neat, I never realized that. An option for skipping the Ctrl-N cycle would still be a nice feature for me at least since I have windows (like communications windows and status windows) that are main MUD windows but should never get focus. Letting Ctrl-N skip promptless windows entirely would be enough for me, but an option provides much more flexibility.
