In WebCoder 5, we went from the top tabcontrol with the tags and dialogs, to the right aligned "toolbox". Only a few people complained about this, and I personally think that it worked better this way. However, it did take up some extra space, and it couldn't be moved, which I didn't like that much.
In the next version of WebCoder, I have experimented a bit again, and converted the toolbox to a true tool window, just like the rest of the tool windows in WebCoder. This allows you to move it around, float it and position it just the way you want it. This also means that you can tab it along with the other tool windows, with the added benefit that the toolbox will no longer use an extra piece of space.
A different control is used for the toolbox as well, which means that you can now have more than one group visible at the same time. In fact, only your resolution sets the limit, as you can see on the screenshot. So, what do you think of the new toolbox? All feedback is appreciated.
