Terminator is a little program in ubuntu gnome that the user can have multiple terminals in one window and use key bindings to switch between them.

The goal of this project is to produce a useful tool for arranging terminals.
It is inspired by programs such as gnome-multi-term, quadkonsole, etc. in that the main focus is arranging terminals in grids (tabs is the most common default method, which Terminator also supports).

Much of the behaviour of Terminator is based on GNOME Terminal, and we are adding more features from that as time goes by, but we also want to extend out in different directions with useful features for sysadmins and other users. If you have any suggestions, please file wishlist bugs! (see below for the address)

Terminator Features:
* Arrange terminals in a grid
* Tabs
* Drag and drop re-ordering of terminals
* Lots of keyboard shortcuts
* Config file to override gnome-terminal settings
* Simultaneous typing to arbitrary groups of terminals
