You could also consider using a window manager with tabs (or a similar
grouping feature). IMHO, tabs as they are used in mozilla etc. are 
performing a window-management job, and as such should be handled by the
window manager. I certainly think it is a better situation for WMs to
add support for that or an equivalent mechanism than for every single
app to start adding their own tab-feature.
