Terminator allows multiple panes in Gnome Terminal, tabs then hide/show them all.
Since you seem to like Tabs so much, I think you'll enjoy this little known feature of Eterm.
A Screen compatible theme!
Eterm -t Escreen
Yep, it basically uses some really neat features to tie into screen, allowing you to use Eterm as a frontend.
You get all of the advantages of screen, and the pretty themes of Eterm.
Just checked my shortcut, turns out that i use
Eterm -U "/" to start a session
and Eterm -U "/-x" to resume
(i use 2 or 3 terms all looking into the same session, makes moving things around really easy)
Warning, if your hardstatus line has time and date on it set in your screenrc, you might have problems with the hardstatus in Eterm. (at least on ubuntu, and a few others i've used)
Marcel, nice introductary article to Tabbed terminals. I've always enjoyed KTerm for that very reason. But I'm surprised you didn't find or mention Mrxvt (previously called materm). Since you appear to prefer using Rxvt like I do, you should give Mrxvt a try, found at http://materm.sourceforge.net
Since finding mrxvt, I don't use KTerm or any other tabbed terminal. I think you'll enjoy mrxvt as much as I do. I wish I was more up to date in C programming (and had more time) to help out. I think this is very worthwhile project - particularly for smaller, leaner linux systems and distros like DSL.
mrxvt does not support unicode, unfortunately.
However, I just found out that urxvt has basic tab support through a perl module.
urxvt -pe tabbed
too bad, i was looking to trick out the real shell, i know theres something for it, every live distro is using it but i dunno what the hell it is called
It's all framebuffer magic and what you want to find is stuff like
fbsplash, fblogo, fbi and fbcon
