I second that. Most of the time people have only a couple of files
open and want to see them all at once as tabs. If four files are open,
one can see which one is visible (the highlighted tab) and which are
not. Usually I know which tab is which file without reading the text
on the tab. With a drop down one would always have to read the file
names. I agree that tabs are confusing if there are tons of them.
