I personally find the property inspector a bit annoying too. GLX2 had a pretty good property inspector, and Remo has a way to insert basic properties into the script of the object. Really nice! And you can add other properties by typing in the name using the same syntax as the other ones.
All that said, I get the way the default property inspector works. I would find it exceptionally tedious to have to double click an object and get a fresh property inspector and then navigate to the particular tab each time I wanted to change something like the font! It works like the Adobe Property Panels or the Microsoft Property Panels work. It reflects the object(s) you currently have selected. For me, this is vastly superior as the tab does not revert simply because you selected another object.
To each his own.

There are three different Find/Replace dialogs and you're never sure which one will pop up when you press command-F. The File menu contents are completely different depending on which window is active. The message box appears and disappears at what seem to be completely random intervals. How nice would it be to have an Application Browser option to list stacks, not cards, in alphabetical order.

Can anyone suggest a way around this without locking or manually closing the inspector? I would prefer that the inspector automatically close when selecting the Browse tool instead of it reverting to the stack properties. Better yet, I would prefer it to not change and remain focussed on the last control! TIA.
