Can you have more than one content window in Bridge. If not why not? This would save quite a lot of time as you wouldn't need to keep using the back button or the bread crumb trail to grab content from different folders

Thanks for the reply Chris which does indeed answer my question. But don't you think it would be slicker to have content windows alongside each other i.e tabs so for example you could have:
content window (folder 1) | content window (folder 2) | Filters.

Given the Bridge UI, that would create a lot of ambiguity about which files are targeted, whereas having separate windows leaves no ambiguity (each has a separate set of targets, active when the respective window is active).

I'd echo this to the extent that I'd just like to be able to dock multiple Bridge windows together like modern web browsers do. Bridge seems to perform best when you can open it and leave it open. The problem with this is that it's still kinda slow to change volumes. I can have multiple windows open each one targeted at the volume I'd like to look at.

If I can just dock these together as tabbed ui to remove the clutter of multiple windows...that would be great!
