Tablane

At the GoodGearGuide, we loved our tabbed browsers. From Maxthon, Avant to Opera, we think tabbed browsing is a simple, yet brilliant innovation. It seems the only major browser not to support this functionality at the moment is Internet Explorer.

Tabbed browsers work by opening a new explorer window next to your existing one, but not creating a new window in your taskbar. This allows you to have several internet browser windows open in the one application, but still preserve valuable taskbar real estate.

Tablane takes this concept one step further, introducing us to 'lanes'. A lane allows you to view multiple windows side by side automatically, without having to continually resize windows. For people who need two or windows open at once, this is a handy feature. We also like the many tab configuration options with this product, which allows you to place windows just about anywhere you'd like.

As it is just out of beta however, Tablane missing some of the advanced customisation options of rival products, such as skinning, security and mail. We also think it needs a desperate overhaul of its interface, which is no match for the elegant simplicity of Mozilla.

Behold, Lanes!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
