Please add Tab Width customization

No harm in asking even tho recall its been asked here before, but its a very useful feature I wish Avant had.

The only place im aware its used is in Tab Mix Plus which is a Firefox plugin, but that plugin has a weird issue when you choose the tab wrap (multi row) option: when theres more than one row of tabs opened, a blank area shows up below the last tab row, thats about 1.5 times the height of the tabs, so you effectively end up with another 1.5 worth of rows doing nothing grrr

On my 1366 wide screen, Avants fixed width option allows 20 tabs per line, which is impressive, but a little cramped for seeing what the individual labels are so in Tab Mix plus I allow it to show only 14 tabs per line with a width of 106 pixels. It looks like Avant tabs are set to ~78 pixels.

I like the option to change it around in Tab Mix Plus from time to time, but the mysterious bar at the bottom ultmately makes it a flawed plugin, and Avants just an easier browser to have all my preferred settings and tools on.
