Tabbed browsing

Firefox tabbed browserTabbed browsing is a form of Internet navigation that allows a user to browse multiple pages in a single window. This feature is for users who do want to view multiple sites, but don't want to have multiple browser windows open. In the image to the right, you can see that the Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7 window has two tabs open; just above the browser window.

Tip: Browsers that support tabbed browsing such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer allow users to open a link in a new tab by clicking it with your middle-button (mouse wheel).

Tip: Use the keyboard shortcut key Ctrl + T to open a new tab. Open any closed tab by pressing Ctrl + Shift + T or clicking with your mouse wheel.

Tip: Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Tab to switch between open tabs.

Below is another image and example of how Internet tabs may look. In this example, you can see two tabs open in Google Chrome and clicking between these two tabs would switch between the open pages.
