Are you describing (an evolution of) Rio? Web browsers sure have showed
that window management is severely broken. Tiling solves the problem for
low numbers of windows per view, but should become equivalent to
iconification for as the number of windows grows out of hand. Freedom to
be lax about tagging is absurdly convenient, if possibly unhealthy.
Automatic tagging would probably be way too complicated, unless
implemented by the Netsurf developers.*
