tabble is a small alternative X shell which presents your programs in tabs for easy launch. It is not meant to replace a window manager, just complement it. Light window managers benefit the most from tabble. The idea is that tabble is 'always on top' so multiple launches can be made without re-navigating a menu hierarchy or clearing the desktop.
