Screen recording.

If an app offers tabs, it should be possible to combine two individual app windows to a single window by dragging and dropping one window into the other and also to separate them again by the same action.

As a video says more than a thousand words, please have a look at the screen recording, how the Firefox browser does it.

I am not sure if this needs to solved at the Plasma, Qt or app level.

I could not accomplish this with Konsole, Dolphin, Kate or Okular.
