I think this is not the most useful order, and web browsers arrange tabs
by the order of their creation (although they have an option to switch
tabs by the order of recency, so in the tabbar where tabs are arranged
by the order of creation, C-tab navigates to the last visited tab
and so on, by the order of recency of their visiting time).

Yes, as Eclipse has both types of tab bars: a tab bar of perspectives
equivalent to Emacs window configurations or Emacs frames,
and a tab bar of parts equivalent to Emacs buffers.
