WinTabber - Tab your terminal, shell, browser or favorite application

Notes from ClifNotes, Sep 2007, permalink Desktop Tools


Every now and then, Jack writes me a long letter telling me about all of the cool free programs he's been trying out. Sure, he gets into trouble now and then, but I think he has just as much fun fixing problems as he does trying out new stuff.


Last week he mentioned a system utility he's trying out called WinTabber. I checked it out at SiteAdvisor, and it's rated safe to try. As with any program, your mileage may vary.


Some info from Jack Alexander:

I'm still not finished playing with it (WinTabber) yet, but it does seem to be better than Stick. At this point it does seem to have some quirks, but that could just be my machine. Ever since I tried that TcSpy program, I've been having to do damage control. Tonight Firefox decided it was going to have a major problem and not load, so uninstalled it, ran the reg cleaner in ccleaner, reinstalled, and all is fine now. I have problems with Firefox at least once a week because of all of the risks i take trying programs. But with Erunt and System Restore and a few other tricks it's hard to actually crash XP.

Quote from the website

Do you get frustrated trying to find the right window on your desktop, or with alt-tab but they all look the same?

WinTabber may be the answer ....


WinTabber can add tabs to many windows. A tabbed browser ,tabbed putty , tabbed terminal or tabbed shell, tabbed anything. Multi tab your windows in seconds. A terminal or shell with tabs work faster and efficiently! Having multiple windows as tabs will give a better overview of your windows than before. Also having multiple ssh sessions by the click of a tab works faster and efficiently.
