Tired of too many terminal windows? Mrxvt is a tab-based terminal tool that lets you manage several sessions in a single window.

Mrxvt is an efficient terminal emulation tool that is independent of the standard Linux toolkits and desktops. The Mrxvt terminal tool has many useful features, but one of the more interesting attributes is its tab-oriented design. Mrxvt lets you maintain several terminal sessions in a single window and click the tabs to move between sessions. You can download Mrxvt from the project website. The site also has configuration tips and details about the program’s features. The download section includes links to source code and prebuilt binary packages for distributions such as SUSE, Fedora, or Debian.
