A tabbed layout would suite me better than a free-floating windows. Don't much care for having windows in windows. is there or could there me a mode for that?

You can always maximize one window, and just use tabs from there.

True. But it would be nice if there were a way to start it up maximized.

Mainly though, I'd like to tabs that weren't just dots, but actually showed the current shell prompt.

I originally wanted tty.js to be a kind of tiling window manager, but I found making everything stacking/floating was actually easier in the world of the browser. Making the frontend more extensible should be a goal. I've tried adding features in that area. You can hook into pretty much any event and change a lot of things right now, but not everything.

Yeah, I tried to keep it minimalist. The text would probably almost always get truncated by the width of the window. It didn't seem worth it at the time. I don't know if I would add it if anyone gets a nice working implementation of it. Maybe.
