Often I reach the point that I have 15-20 files open and I'd like to get rid of some of them right now I have to go over all the buffers and close one by one
What do you think about a new menu option "Close Some"
That would bring up a window with the list of files currently opened that can be used to close some of the by clicking on the name

Sorry to be so blunt, but personally, I would consider this feature just bloat. You'd have to want to close MANY windows for this to be useful at all.

How about supporting closing tabs on middle-click on the tab instead? That's how it works for my firefox. Quite useful!

ok, so lets freeze this idea now.

I did not know about the mid-button trick in FF and I am not sure why is that better than clicking on the [x] of the tab. In any case I'd be happy if someone found out how to catch those clicks in Wx.

I guess it's a bit less effort to middle-click on a wide tab.

You can catch middle-clicks using EVT_MIDDLE_UP, like:

package WxTestApp;
use strict;

use Wx;

use base 'Wx::App';

sub OnInit {
                sub {
                        print "You clicked middle mouse button!\n";

        my $frame = Wx::Frame->new(undef,-1,"test");
