@chaiguy The tabs are dynamic, that's the whole point.

@chaiguy Only if the real estate is extremely important. Otherwise - a dropdown is much more cumbersome for selection, it's very unconventional to have a dropdown dynamically populated by items you select on the same page, it doesn't work at all when there's a single value, and it offers no visibility as to its contents until you expand it. Not a great solution IMHO.

comment What is easy to perceive? Width or height?
Then I suggest going for the first option (vertical lines). You're afraid that drawing them with create an illusion of a trend and you're right, but from what I understand, your users are supposed to be familiar with the nature of the data and shouldn't be confused. Not connecting them for this reason is making the users work much harder just to avoid a vague possibility of them making a small and inconsequential one-time mistake.

Outlook, if you set the Reading Pane on the bottom. Gmail if you split your screen horizontally. Pretty much every email client supports this, and in general most software that has a table controlling a preview area (since they try to display more columns at the expense of some rows - the table takes up the width, and the split is horizontal).

Can I think of any real-world examples of... master-detail relationship? Well, yes, quite a few :). Update on click, use scrolling for many elements.

Here you actually pay a much higher price for the long names, than in the original. In the original you had less tabs fit in a row, and it was specified that only a few tabs would be needed normally. But in this suggestion you significantly reduce the available real estate within each tab with every character that you add to the tab name.
