Tabbed browsing interface


I try to get myself used to tabbed browsing – it is an interesting concept. Not only Firefox has this feature – you can find it in IE too!

Maxthon is a powerwful web extension that brings these little tabs  to the IE world: http://www.maxthon.com/en/index.htm

    IE actually was the first browser to have tabbed browsing, in IE 3.x (and maybe in 4.x). It was dropped for usability reasons, just like any other MDI UI.

    Maxthon isn’t a web extension – it’s the browser formerly known as myIE2.

    If I’m going to abandon IE6 for tabbed browsing, it’ll be for one of the Mozilla clients.

    Good correction – sorry. I thought that Maxthon is a IE addon but it is a separate standalone browser.

    Still, it uses IE rendering engine… :-)

  4. I find tabbed browsing most useful when you can set the browser to open links in the background in a new tab. Especially handy if you are scanning down a news site looking for articles.

    If the browser won’t do this automatically, you can use the middle button to open links in new tabs instead of windows.
