Some people like tabs, some don't. Tabs do not scale well beyond a handful of 
files though. I'd rather search through an alphabetical list (in the left pane) 
or an ordered list (ctrl+tab popup menu) than hunting through 4 rows of 
arbitrarily ordered tab headers.

Shouldn't be that hard to add in. File a feature request in JIRA. For now, 
escape x 2, Ctrl+0 does a 1st order approximation.

Qt Creator is an open source project. Contribute if something is bugging you.
