This would add one extra click to switch the current/active project and 
to inspect how many and/or which projects are open. I can live with that.

The remaining tab bar (Build & Run, Editor, ...) could still be too 
wide. So what do we do with that one?

1) ...transform it into a list view. However, I already have 7 entries 
there and this will be problematic for displays/resolutions with limited 
vertical space.

2) ...move the items to the corresponding projects in the combobox (as 
sub items). Disadvantages:
  a) To switch to another project, you would need to visually skip 
several sub items (Build & Run, Editor, ...) of the current project.
  b) If you switch to a concrete item of another project, e.g. 
("Editor"), you would implicitly switch the project, too. This might be 
not that obvious.
