I am looking for something a bit different than any "dock" style app I have tried.

What I am looking for is something a bit like the awesome "stick" application

only that is able to put ANY window into a tab.

The effect would be similar to when OneNote is docked to the side of the desktop, except that only a certain tabbed area (rather than the entire side of the desktop) would activate.

Or, to put it another way, it would work kind of like a regular dock, except that the dock items would be little tabs, attached to any screen edge, that I would click on, and the tab would stay attached to the window so it would shrink back when I clicked on it again. (Alternately, a tabbed application could be made to "auto-hide")

Anybody know of anyone working on anything like this?

I'd love this too. I guess it doesn't really exist though :( This gets close - – MorganTiley Jul 29 '13 at 13:33

Recently I tried Preme for windows 7, it is pretty complete by now.

I just installed this and I'm really not sure how this is a solution to the question. There seem to be some good features, but no docking. – MorganTiley Jul 24 '13 at 12:18
