If you like tabbed terms, you might love GNU screen
One of the many advantages is that it keeps your state even if you detach (such as logging out) and allows you to reattach over ssh from a different terminal. It also allows you to share your session with other users so they can see what you are doing and even type into your session.
Finally, it is fully keyboard driven, so your work isn't interrupted by groping for the mouse, wiggling it to find the pointer, then dragging the pointer over to the tab you want, then clicking, then moving your hand back to the keyboard where it can do useful work. Instead you just hit, for example, "control-a 0" to go to the first screen.
