I want to see the tabs at the top function much like the Windows task bar does: shrink as more windows are being opened or allow for more than just one row of tabs. If my memory serves me right, the Notes 7 client shrunk the tabs to fit more across the screen.
I generally have a bunch of things open in my Notes client: obviously the home page, my inbox, calendar, the replicator, a few emails, a couple of databases and different documents inside of those databases.  In all, there could be 10 or more open tabs at any given moment.  No matter how many windows are open, the tab sizes stay the same.  The way I have my Notes client window sized, I only see about 7 tabs across the top and have to use the little drop-down arrow to the right to access the rest of the open windows.

Using 8.0.1, the tabs seem to resize for me.

I'm running 8.0.1. The tabs seem to shrink a little bit but only up to a point. After about 8 tabs -- they stop resizing.

You can group tabs by application and they will run in an organized manner--making it much easier to find what you need. This trumps the Windows Program Manager behavior, imho. I have 66 tabs spread out over 12 application tabs within the client. I would not want to sift through them otherwise.

And closing Notes will correctly re-open each of the 66 tabs properly when restarting the client--so this is a good feature in Notes, as well.
