Tabbed browsing was introduced to web browsers around 2000 and 2001 with Opera and Mozilla. Tabbed browsing allows you to open multiple web pages in a single browser window, allowing for fast switching between web pages without cluttering up the window management tools of the underlying operating system.
These days all popular web browsers include tabbed browsing. Even Internet Explorer 6, which does not support tabbed browsing natively, can use tabs with the Live toolbar from Microsoft.
The concept of Tabbed Browsing is still evolving, with Mozilla Firefox 4 releasing a feature called Tab Candy that offers greater flexibility than the traditional tab list on the top of the browser window.
