This is currently just a proposal that I'd like to explore: OSes are switching to displays apps in their task managers/switchers in most recently used order with no UI for rearranging them and very simple UI for closing apps. For example: - Windows 8 displays its apps in an top-to-bottom overlay column on the left side of the screen when you edge swipe from the left. This simple list is in most recently used order. - iOS displays its apps in its app switcher in a left-to-right row on the bottom of the screen in most recently order. - Android displays its apps in a bottom-to-top vertical column in most recently used order with a simple left-to-right swipe gesture for closing apps. I think tabs should be displayed this way too, as it is a paradigm that is very easy to understand and discourages the user from unnecessary tab management. Also, the ctrl+tab order in traditional tab interfaces does not match up with alt/win/cmd+tab's most recently used order, but if we display tabs in most recently used order, it would inherently match up.
