Sometimes, you may have many logs to trace at once, you may need to copy and paste text from files to files, and tabbed terminal is just not convenient enough.
So, you hope for a terminal that allows you to split your console screen into either horizontal or vertical flexibly. If you have such requirements like I do, then you are looking for console terminal software just like Terminator.
Terminator implements those flexibility of arranging terminals based on Gnome terminal. It allows you to split your screen putting the terminals as a single view. You can switch the terminals by just drag and drops. You can still adjust the size of each terminals. The tabbed features remains, therefore you can still have multiple tabs and each tab you may have multiple terminals.
Terminator re-implements the shortcut keys capabilities, you can create and edit .config/terminator/config to define your shortcut keys there. Check out the manual page for more info.
