SuperTabControl support all 4 tab orientations so tabs can be placed on any side of the tab control. Tab text can be oriented horizontally or vertically when tabs are left or right aligned. Color schemes are designed so they look great no matter which tab orientation you choose.

On each tab you can display close button that allows closing of the tab. We provide events that you can handle when user clicks the button and you can assign custom images for close button as well. Here is screen-shot that shows default close button implementation:
