Details

It would be nice if you could have multiple servers connected at once all in the
same Chatzilla window so it wouldn't clutter up your screen.
Ok.. heheh I guess I don't get off that easy.

Let me explain it a little better.

There are a bunch of tabs on the bottom of the textarea with such as this:


\ i.m.org    /\     #moz1  /\    #moz2   /\    i.u.c   /\     #s     /
 \__________/  \__________/  \__________/  \__________/  \__________/  

My idea is to organize the tabs in a double tabbed way:

\ i.m.org    /\     #moz1  /\    #moz2   /\    i.u.c   /
 \__________/  \__________/  \__________/  \__________/

and

\    i.u.c   /\     #s     /\ i.m.org    /
 \__________/  \__________/  \__________/  

So only the channels for one server are open at a time.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
that would actually bite somewhat, with regards to coloring of the channel name
when somebody sais something...

would be better to just put some noticable separator between servers, I think;

\  i.m.o  /\  #moz1  /\  #moz2  /||\  i.u.c  /\  #foo  /
 \_______/  \_______/  \_______/ || \_______/  \______/

and make your suggestion an option, for those who'd like it.
Remove myself from QA of 33 open Chatzilla bugs and change to default QA
contact, since I have no way to verify these easily.  Still no working Mozilla
on my primary platform and it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. :(

comment #2 makes sense.. it is the way server separation is achieved in mirc 6.x
we don't even a separator, just a little more space
(as the gaps seen in bug 114742)

Example:
[Server1][#channel1][#channel2][#channel3] [Server2][#channel1][#channel4]
I agree with #2 and #4. Also, channels should be sorted alphabetically within
their respective groups (where one group = one server...)
I don't think automatically sorting the channels is a good idea - I like mine in
a fixed order, but forcing the channels for each network apart would be nice.
problem is the tabs don´t become smaller if the tab bar is full
this way new tabs, i.e. queries, are out of sight
if u add spaces between networks plz first remove this limitation of channels
you can join
(I don´t like automatically move focus to new tabs)
