Alternative terminal to konsole & gnome-terminal

Hi there!!

Im looking for a terminal emulator that have the tab function like konsole or gnome-terminal but that its desktop environment independent because im not using neither of them (fluxbox btw) and as far as i now when konsole (or g-t) is loaded it also loads some libs to the memory (not counting that i've to have it installed in disk) that i really wouldnt need if im not using them... (i also dont use any of the appz that come with both gnome and kde).

Any alternatives?
Thanks in advance ...
