Multi Gnome Terminal is an enhanced version of gnome-terminal, with many powerful new features and extensions. The most notable enhancement is the ability to run multiple terminals within the same window.

Each terminal may be accessed by its "tab", through keyboard shortcuts, or menu selections. Inactive terminals provide an alert when the buffer changes by changing the color of the tab labels.

Other enhancements include a toolbar, a buttonbar, flexible command options to launch new terminals, tabs, and shells from either the GUI or command line, customizable key bindings for MGT functions and other uses, font shadowing, the ability to "split" terminals so that each window can simultaneously multiple terminals, the ability to "view" or "bond" terminals with other terminals, and various other improvements

Each terminal Window is "Tabbed" for easy navigation.
