Tabs on the bottom in X-Chat also make sense because you have the text
entry widget and most recent channel activity at the bottom of the window.
 Since you're generally looking there, it's easier to notice the channel
activity highlights on the tab labels, and quicker to switch between them.
 Some may prefer tabs on the bottom in terminals for similar reasons,
although this seems less likely.  In any case, I don't think it would be
wise to enforce a single tab position across applications.
