The tabs don't scale beyond a few files, and they are not easily keyboard navigable, so offer no real advantage over the file list. Remove them.

Don't leave them in because they are going to get better in the future. Just remove them.

I think we can close this, bugzilla isn't where we track major UX changes like this.
