My point is that with the persistent pane, it feels somewhat unituitive to click a catergory button and have nothing change down there until you tick a box. What if all the tabs are always open, and clicking them unchecks all the options for that tab only, an option which seems to be missing (other than closing the tab entirely). I'm not sure the extra clicks to bring down/hide the check boxes are really adding anything to it.
The only other concern I had was that clicking the X on the search box was the only way to close it. Personally, I'd have it close if a click is made anywhere on the background, but this could be problematic if you miss a click on an item with the way the search box short circuits the filters. At the very least the close button needs to be more accessible or activated by the escape key.
On the tabs:
Would you like it if clicking a category filtered by that category as a tag would? I could very easily make it do that.
On the escape key to close:
I can do such, I just tried to avoid taking over keyboard control on this example. I'll look in to it later though.

I'm a little confused about this comment. Although I did set the filenames as .php, there is no actual PHP used. I simply did so because I'm both used to PHP and wanted the option available to me if something came up that would provoke it.
In short: There is no PHP here that needs to be worked on.
