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.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
