I have never used Brief, so I don't know what I'm talking about to see four or five different files at once in it, but you can do that in VS can't you? Just drag the tab out of the main window, or right-click on the file in the tab bar and select 'Float'. If your tabs are top or bottom, you can have several windows around your screen to see them at once. If your tabs are right or left (like mine), the tabs take up a lot of space so getting several windows open simultaneously is harder.

I'm sure you have tried this before, and it isn't equivalent to Brief's method, but if not, have fun!

edit - you can even use Window snapping on them
