Photoshop: What the hell is this shit?
Here is how I imagine this crap came about
Windows users stupidly maximize everything
photoshop uses the shitty and clunky windows MDI interface
its a fucking nightmare when opening multiple documents
tabs fix this in a web browser (and pretty much only a web browser)
put tabs in photoshop
hang on I can still only see 1 document its just faster to swap between them
add this dumb shit
put it into the Mac version too where the superior window management and expose mean the original problem didn’t exist in the first place
Reminds me so much of the windows shutdown usability crapfest
