The comparison is not entirely apt. Each Eclipse, IntelliJ, Visual Studio  
is a complete environment. It would be like opening an entirely new  
Image+VM, which you don't do in Smalltalk either. It's actually more  
do-able (and I've done it occasionally) in these other tools because of  
the source-file-based set-up.

The equivalent of the browser in these environments is the editing window  
(with associated browsing tools). And, of course, one has many of those  
open at once--though not as many as browsers in Smalltalk since one window  
is good for an entire class, at least. ;-)
