Editor tab handling

An assoicate pointed out that they wished that Resharper could change VS's
handling of the editor tabs across the top to be more like Mozilla. In
particular, clicking the mouse wheel (or right-clicking, or something
configurable) to close the tab, and then having it open the NEXT tab to the
left when a tab is closed (rather than jumping to the 'last tab' you were
looking at). I tend to agree this would be desirable. We already have two
different ways to go to the 'last tab viewed' ... Ctrl-Tab/Ctrl-Shift-Tab
navigation, and Resharper's Ctrl-E Recent Files list. It'd be nice if the
tabs behaved more predictably, like in the tabbed browsing features of
Mozilla/FireFox.

Hello Paul,

honestly, I doubt it makes much sense to implement such a feature in a VS
add-in. It seems
too intrusive and, by definition, the purpose of an add-in is to add functionality,
no to change the way things currently work. Otherwise, many users would be
frustrated
(they've already used to the current behavior), or we would have to introduce
yet another option.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestion. I think we can consider implementing
this in the ReSharper IDE.
