Ideally the HTML window would be a “panel” so that the document 
remains “main window” and will get the keys not handled by the HTML 
window (like ⇧⌘F, but also bundle commands like re-running a build 
on ⌘B or a script on ⌘R).

Unfortunately making the HTML window a panel has a few disadvantages, 
for example one can no longer search the content of the HTML window 
(with ⌘F) and with a HTML window frontmost, opening new window and 
closing it again, will not bring focus back to the HTML window.

That said, this is on the list of issues I would very much like to 
solve, the specific case with project folder could probably be solved 
easier than the general case, as we can make a direct link between the 
two windows, as I also want to link the file browser so that we can have 
an option for searching what is currently selected there, so I will look 
at it when I reach that item.
