Thanks for the feedback!  Suggestions on how to improve the interface are

We don't have any real documentation to help you out yet, so I'll quote a
recent answer I gave to a similar question:

"In our implementation, a tab is not a container the way a window is.
Rather, it's a handle for a particular buffer (i.e. tabs are a UI for
handling several buffers, not for managing multiple windows).  You can't
open a file in an existing tab.  In order to have files open with a tab in
the current window, make sure you've got Show Tabs checked and Pop Up Other
Buffers in Frames unchecked.  [Both are in the Options menu.]

"In short, Show Tabs doesn't change which window/frame a buffer appears in;
it just creates a tab in the tab bar for each buffer as it appears in any
given window.  I hope that helps."
