Freeware ASCII tab editor. As it is an old program, it is somewhat limited in function. It doesn't function well as a tab viewer, but does a good job as a simple tab editor (no rhythmic notation possible).

An excellent tablature editor that can be used to easily create both power tab files, and very good looking ASCII guitar tab. Although it has many functions, Power Tab remains easy to use. Recommended.
