I would like to enable prompt to act like the bash one, and have tab-completion.

I know that tab is used to switch between windows, but I would prefer to do completion if the command line is not empty.

You get bash-completion after toggling the panes off by pressing Ctrl-o. Otherwise, in the prompt you can use Esc-Tab.

Obvious, but is any way to use normal Tab for completion? – sorin Dec 19 '12 at 15:15
Esc-Tab is a very smart shortcut. I always can't remember it. – gumkins Mar 21 at 22:02
