Make it easier to rearrange view tabs

I have limited mobility of my thumb and wrist and find it is very defeating and time consuming to juggle multiple open tabs at once in Pro. This is an idea to make it easier to rearrange them. Right now you have to keep your mouse moving very horizontally to move a tab -- if you accidentally move too much in the Y direction when dragging, it becomes a floating window; if you hover back over the main display, it'll allow for docking, but like with existing floating windows, it'll just put it back in the old position, no ability to rearrange it unless you start over. The tab strip also doesn't scroll when reaching the ends, requiring you to drop, scroll, drop, scroll to move a tab a long distance. Lastly, unless it uses a key other than Shift or Ctrl, you cannot select multiple tabs and move groups of them at once. These are all easy tasks with any web browser and similar functionality would be very nice to have -- to be able to adjust tab order even if you have a floating window, to have the bar scroll when you reach the end, and to move multiple tabs at once. It is not uncommon for me to have 10+ tabs open at a time and this would make my life a lot easier. Thank you.

I second this.  

If I had a nickel for every time I dragged my cursor too far from the tab area and had to start over again..
