1) If you close tab in Firefox and then click middle mouse button on white space besides tabs it reopens tab which you just closed. It also keeps history of tabs which you have closed so you can re-open more then one tab.

2) Also in Firefox (3) you have small dropdown list at the very right side of tab line where you can switch to any of open tabs. This could be an alternative and in my opinion better way how to implement this (-> http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1843000&group_id=95717&atid=612385\) feature request. A lot like what you see at "Window" menu.

    Are you saying that saving the history of tabs should save an unsaved file to a temporary location if you happened to close an unsaved document so that you can reopen this document later? Or are you saying that it should store a history of closed tabs and reopening these tabs would open the file to the last saved version? (The latter of which would the same as the recent files list.)

    More like recent files list as you can't close unsaved files accidentally.

    Like most text editors, Notepad++ has a recent file list under File. If it doesn't list files for you, go under Settings > Preferences... > MISC and set the max number of history files. As for selecting open tabs, you can hold the right click and use the scroll wheel to switch between tabs, or use ctrl-tab, in addition to the Window menu.

    I agree, there are plenty of ways to switch between open tabs, but my first suggestion is still open. It shouldn't be hard to implement.
