Yes and no: I use F11 a lot to maximize the client area, so none
of the decoration clutter is visible. I've started with 3, but it
got out of hand... because it saves me time and space is not an issue.

Yes, I use multirow bookmarks, and most of my tabs (in the top row,
as well in the bookmark row) have just the icons (no text, since
I know what they do), so they take mininal space. I just counted
that I have 22 Pinned tabs; the first 8 I reach using Ctrt+1-Ctrl+8,
and I remember them -- ztw3.com is Ctrl+3 :-).

Ah, indeed, I use the Enhancer for YouTube (that I strongly
recommend to everybody):


and it can clone a YouTube tab into a basic player window that
I can drag around and resize to incredibly tiny size when I just
need to listen to the content. And, the original tab stays in the
browser, no need to worry about dragging it back! I suppose it's
a type of windowed/popup, whatever...

But that's basically the experience I was after with "Move Tab",
"Move to New Window", but which requires that you think about returning
the tab back home.

When you have blind spots and assumptions, obvious things don't
occur to you. I have other embarrassing situations in front of
total newbies when they asked me for help and I was completely stuck.
Then they took the mouse and did the "obvious"...
