Have a look at tabbar.el I got it from

Not completely what you want since it doesn't go by usage order though.

I set it up with:

;; enable the tabbar
(require 'tabbar)
;; show only non-scratch buffers
(setq tabbar-buffer-list-function
   (lambda ()
          (find (aref (buffer-name buffer) 0) " *")) (buffer-list))))

(global-set-key [(control f10)] 'tabbar-local-mode)
(global-set-key [(C-S-iso-lefttab)] 'tabbar-backward-tab)
(global-set-key [(C-tab)]       'tabbar-forward-tab)
(global-set-key [(C-M-S-iso-lefttab)] 'tabbar-backward-group)
(global-set-key [(C-M-tab)]       'tabbar-forward-group)
