2. Surf the Web > 2.4. Exploring Tabbed Web Browsing

Exploring Tabbed Web Browsing

Tabbed browsing is a great feature for power web surfers. In normal web browsing, clicking on a link changes the current page to display the contents of the link you clicked on, or sometimes a clicked link opens up a new browser window. The eventual result is that after 20 minutes of surfing you end up with several open browser windows cluttering up your desktop.

The solution to this browsing mess is tabs. Tabbed browsing allows you to have several pages open at the same time within one window. Tabbed browsing, which originated in the web browser Opera, has become so popular that all modern web browsers except Internet Explorer (who would have guessed?) include the feature. Don’t ask me why Microsoft hasn’t added it yet; until recently, they were way behind with pop-up ad blocking, too.
