Tabs UI (for open files) needs improvement

I'm almost to the point where I need to start using another editor. Don't get me wrong, I love Sublime Text 2, but the tab management interface is lacking significantly enough where it's affecting my workflow. After I get more than 15 files open (on a large monitor), the UI starts to fall apart. I've currently got 29 files open, and the tabs are unusable because I can't read the file names. Instead I have to use the explorer tree, which takes too much time when you're dealing with a large project. I've also inadvertently closed tabs by accident when the tabs are small, which is a huge pain in the butt when you don't know where the file is.

I recommend doing something like eclipse... only allow a certain number of tabs in the tab bar, and the rest are in a little menu that is accessible from the tab bar.

Maybe Show Open Files in the sidebar would work for you?

Or try using the 'goto anything' shortcut more
