LastTab can display various informational popups to help you find the tab you want
to work with.
Prior to version 3 little flexibility was offered in this area. Pressing Ctrl-Tab
was the only keystroke that could be used to display a popup, there was only one
kind of popup to display, and its behavior could not be changed.
Popups now work on the principle of actions. An action completely defines the operation
of a popup: from the kind of popup to display, the user action to trigger it, to
how it behaves. Multiple actions can be defined at once. So pressing Ctrl-Tab to
display a popup with tabs represented by their icons, sorted by usage, with the
initial selection on the next tab in the sort is now but one of many possibilities.
The Focusing feature works in the background to make a few user actions more intuitive.
When closing the tab you're working with, instead of simply focusing the tab next
to it LastTab can instead focus the tab you were last working with.
LastTab also provides a, perhaps quirky, but surprisingly useful feature. When clicking
the tab you're working with it can change the focus to the last tab you were working
with. This can be a very quick way to switch between two tabs whenever you want
to look at the other.
Ever lose count of how many tabs you have open? LastTab can display the current
count in the status bar.
