Dan, I'm the guy to ask if you ever want to find "cool utilities" that
meet specialized needs and the TSVN developer team says it doesn't
really belong in TSVN. I call myself the "Ultimate Product Finder and
Tester" and I find all products worth finding. I recently ran across a
freeware utility that might be sufficient for your developer's needs:
I found Stick lacking for my needs but it might be the perfect solution
for your needs. The "Explorer" tabs was what I was after and I have a
5-button mouse and the back and forward buttons don't work. I also
didn't like the "note taking tab" because it didn't feel like Notepad
and felt more like a weak WordPad with a simple embedded RTF control
(after a quick check, it _IS_ a simple embedded RTF control). For your
needs, though, it may be worth a try (use the 2.4 Beta 11 build - 2.3
lacks some features). Stick is slightly better than keeping a Notepad
window open all day.
I've contacted the author to see if they have a SDK (there is a partial
plugin architecture but half of the exports are name-mangled, meaning
the author botched up what it means to say something is a plugin).
AFAIK, there is no other product even close to what Stick does (free or
otherwise). Feel free to find something else, but if I didn't find it
during my quest a few weeks ago, it probably doesn't exist.
