It works nicely as a floating window too, or even when maximize because it could truly stand on its own as a separate program.
Actually, I disagree with you, and would go as far to say that you are wrong, and the reason, or rather the fundamental reason is the main cause for the actual popularity e-Sword the way it has been designed for the user.
The fundamental way that e-Sword has been designed is two fold:
- Quick access to all main interface areas
- Ease of use.
By having that kind of design places everything virtually at one's proverbial finger tip, and the result of this places all the main study areas in total line of sight. This means the user doesn't have to go through a myriad of floating windows to access any particular resource.
The tabs also are a far quicker method to access a particular Commentary, Dictionary/Lexicon, and Bible translation rather than a type of Menu system because they are there already in front of your line of sight, thus you don't have to scroll through a menu thingy for that particular book.
There is a great deal more that I can go in to in the way that e-Sword has been designed which makes this program perhaps the best Bible study program, but that would take a book to write.
Finally, there are both free and premium Bible Study software, and most of them have floating windows, which includes the editors. That said, look at the number of users and user support they have, plus the amount of resources, both free and paid, then compare them against e-Sword, and ask yourself the question, "Why is e-Sword topping them?"
