10.5: Tabbed Terminal tricks Apps
Terminal 2.0 appears to have the same tab behavior as Safari 3.0. This means you can drag tabs out of Terminal to become their own window, and conversely, you can drag separate Terminal windows and coalesce them into one tabbed window.

A very welcome enhancement.

[robg adds: You can also drag-rearrange them within the same window. I couldn't find this documented in Terminal's help files, but maybe I just overlooked it.]

Is it possible to assign hot keys to go directly to a particular terminal tab? This is one feature I really miss from using iTerm.

Yes, you can. Same shortcut as in Safari:

Command-Shift-[ or Command-Shift-]

I can only get transferring of tabs from one window to another happen if the BOTH windows have tabs already. I cannot get it to take 2 individual windows and combine them into a single window with 2 tabs. Also, if you have 2 windows, each with 3 tabs, and you want to make a single window with 6 tabs, you cannot do that. The best you can hope for is 2 windows: 1 with 5 tabs and 1 with one tab, because you will never be able to transfer that last tabless window into the window with 5 tabs. (unless I am doing something wrong--anyone?)

:(

But still pretty cool.

try the Window menu
go down to "Merge All Windows"

It took me a while to find it too!

You can.

Just grab the single tab in the window and drag. The window goes translucent and you can dock it into another window.

Shift-Command-T to show the Terminal bar in a window with one terminal. This solves all of the issues other users found with not being able to do things on windows with one tab.

I use command-{ or command-} to flick between tabs. I think this works in Safari too, and possibly Firefox.
