I loved this add-on when I was playing around with it, but the lack of being able to skin the tabs like buttons to give them new borders and backgrounds was a negative point for me. Do you have any plans on implementing this in the future?

Hmm, doable, but only be entirely rewriting WoW's code for positioning of chat tabs, which would be a huge pain
I had this feeling that might be the case, but...it didn't hurt anyone to ask! Thanks Nib!
