Tabbed Browsing


Its only been a little while since Firefox was introduced and tabbed browsing was introduced with it, I kept seeing buzz words flying around about Firefox and that its going to end IE’s reign on browsing. There might have been other browsers which might have had tabbed browsing but none appealed to the masses such as Firefox has and one of its main advantages is its tabbed browsing. Even with the introduction of IE7 I still feel that its type of tabbed browsing feels slightly incomplete compared to Firefox.

I don’t even remember how I used to browse without tabbed browsing, because every time I browse I start with at least 6-9 tabs, and that is if Im starting fresh. On my desktop I have 3-4 windows open with at least 40 tabs scattered between them. I know what each one is open to even if I leave my pc for a few days and the best thing is that they have the restore capability if the PC crashes and every once in a while my PC does crash for overloading it with all the operations. I think tabbed browsing has made people more addicted to the internet because they read one thing and wait for a few others to load all in the same window and its easily to check on it. I can’t surf without tabbed browsing since tabs will pile up on the bottom, so Firefox has been one of my standard installs on any new computer even if it has IE7. Long live tabs!
