Finder Like Windowed Adium

Postby OZFive » Thu May 27, 2010 3:50 pm

Is there any way to get Adium to look a bit more lie this? I am not crazy about multiple windows and all with it. I would like to get it all in one window and maybe looking kind of finder like. The tabs would make more sense along the side in this setup I thought.

Anyone have any ideas if there is one? If not is this something interesting for someone to do and actually possible?

My ugly cut and paste attempt at showing you my idea.

The idea itself is old, and something that has been discussed before. We are quite a few that would love it, but since it would be a major undertaking, no one has started work on it.

It just seems a little overbearing to me, that's all.

It might be for the light casual user, but for people like me that use it for work purposes and sometimes have more than 10 tabs open for conversations it would be a blessing. Situating the windows next to each other of course give me some similar function to this, but it would be nice to just have the one window.

I actually find it much more straight forward, than having two separate windows..

I don't like it because I like to make all my windows as small as possible and situate them around the screen with my main work being in the middle.
