What I actually do is three things.

* First, there is tabbar-mode with a grouping function that assigns a
single group to each window (not frame) and groups buffers by the
window they were last seen in. (The “last seen in” information is
tracked by a hook.) I use M-S-<left>/<right> to switch tabs and never
switch groups.

* Second, M-S-<down> calls ibuffer (in the current window), allowing
me to select a buffer if it’s too far away or bring a buffer from a
different window.

* Third, M-S-<up> is bound to dired-jump, letting me navigate buffers
according to the filesystem-based relationships.
