Chapter 8. Exploring the Internet > Browsing the Web Using Tabs

Browsing the Web Using Tabs

When you open a Web page, it opens in the same window you are using. If you want to view more than one page at a time, you can open Web pages in separate tabs or new windows (). Before you can open Web pages in tabs, you need to turn on tabbed browsing in Safari Tab Preferences. You can also specify other tab options to select new tabs as they are created or always show the Tab bar. When you open a page in a tab or set the Safari Tab Preference option, the Tab bar appears (below the Bookmarks bar) with the name of the Web page along with a box you can use to close the tab. If you select a Web page from the History or Bookmarks menu, the page opens in the current tab. When you use the Back and Forward buttons in the Address bar, Safari displays Web pages previously viewed in the current tab.

Enable Tabbed Browsing

Click the Safari menu, and then click Preferences.

Click Tabs.

Select the Enable Tabbed Browsing check box.

To open new tabs in front of the current tab, select the Select New Tabs As They Are Created check box.

IMPORTANT When you enable tabbed browsing or Select New Tabs As They Are Created, shortcuts for opening Web pages in separate tabs and windows change. The bottom of the Tab Preferences window displays the new shortcuts. The shortcuts change revert back when you disable the options.

Select or clear the Always Show Tab Bar check box.

Click the Close button.
