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!

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
