A form of Internet browsing that enables a user to browse multiple pages in one window. This feature is great for users who do not want to have multiple browser windows open and also a great way to have web pages open in the background without interrupting your viewing on the current page. In the image to the right, you can see that the Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7 window has two tabs open. The tabs are right above the browser window.
Tip: Browsers that support tabbed browsing such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer also support the ability to open a new tab by clicking any link on a web page with your middle-button (mouse wheel).
Tip: Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Tab to switch between open tabs.
Tip: Clicking any tab with the wheel as a button will close that tab.
Below is another image and example of what Internet tabs may look like. In this example you can see two tabs open in Mozilla Firefox 3.0, clicking between these two tabs would switch between the open pages.
