Extended VS Presentation plugin contributes powerful editing sessions management and highly customisable and very useful Eclipse skin ("look and feel").
Editing sessions management allows you remember opened editor set (session) and reload it any time later. This is useful if you often switch from one to another context. If you ever used Opera browser, you know the trick ;-)
The skin does not only have all "default" Eclipse presentation features but adds much more useful things like fully customizable opened/closed editor lists, really useful tab area with predictable tab ordering policy, clear and space - saving look, much more customization options like the tab size / padding / border / color / fonts, "on-the-fly" themes switch support without to "reboot" Eclipse etc.
Please note, that the skin, tab actions and lists are available for Eclipse 3.x only! Eclipse 4.x is not supported.
I am running Eclipse 3.6 on Ubuntu 10. The eclipse tabs and buttons are huge and take up too much editor real estate. I spent several hours trying to figure out how to make the tabs smaller before I found this plugin.
