After testing the vertical tabs for a while i really like it but for a few things.

Since I use it on my right screen it would be better to be able to have it on the right side of the screen
Another thing is when it is collapsed, the "X" should be accessible directly, instead of having to hover the mouse and then move the mouse to close the tab. The X should also be in the same place collapsed and expanded.

The width of the expanded area should be user configurable.

I would like to have the option to close vertical tabs by a close button contained in the toolbar, since I don't like to expand the vertical tabs (it does take to much space and it disturbs the sight on the content).

From a usability standpoint it would be good to have such a toolbar button, because the way the mouse have to move, is closer then.
