Enhancement: Add an option to move window decorations to the bottom. #2747
For some setups it might be desirable to have window decorations appear at the bottom of a window or container:
I propose a configuration option
to (globally) set the position of titlebars and tabs.
I would love to implement this feature myself, but I'll probably need assistance from somebody experienced with i3 internals.
@fknorr Hi, I have come up with a workaround for the first use-case. In stead of focus with one click, you can make it a double click to focus by putting this into the config file:
Bonus: you could also use the same idea for to use double click to close tab:
Hope it helps.

+1 from me.
My mouse goes to the top border for accessing menus and the like. I usually disable title bars completely for that reason. However, with stacked or tabbed layout, there will be window decorations (for a good reason). These UI elements are rather unimportant (i3 being a keyboard-centric window manager), the top of the screen should be reserved for important UI elements.
Note that because I disable title bars by default for non-floating windows, I'm perfectly fine with the title bar (if present) being at the top if the window (I don't care, actually). The important thing for me is to move tabbed and stacked layout to the bottom.
Edit: Given that most screens nowadays are wide (16:9), we've usually got plenty of horizontal space, while vertical space is limited. Therefore, being able to put window decorations, tabs etc. to the left/right might also be a very valuable option.
