MetroPivot WebPart for SharePoint 2010
This web part will take all the web parts in a zone and turn them into a Windows phone-style pivot control.

Familiar with the Easy Tabs Web Part? The concept of this web part is very similar: a 'tab' sheet is created that only displays one web part at a time, saving page space and simplifying the UI for users. As an added benefit, the MetroPivot web part has a modern UI style, smooth animation, and even works within SharePoint dialogs.
