TabLaunch is a simple and lightweight but cool-looking X application launch bar based on YeahLaunch. It displays a user-specified list of applications as tabs along the top of the screen. The user can specify an x coordinate offset to position the launch bar or right-align it. The launch bar becomes hidden after a specified delay. Each tab can be displayed as text or an icon. Tabs are enlarged or zoomed-in when the mouse is over a tab. Imlib or Imlib2 can be used to show and enlarge icons.
