Split screen/tabbed interface for multiple servers.

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:

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

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

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


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

So only the channels for one server are open at a time.
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)

[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)
