Tabbed Browsing

Why is tabbed browsing so much better than, er, untabbed browsing? An Internet Explorer user said he did not understand why I like Firefox: “What does it matter if you click on tabs at the top of the browser window, or on icons in the task bar?” I could not tell him, just that it does.

    Does IE do background loading (ctrl-click in Firefox)? For me, that’s the killer.

    To be honest, I wasn’t even aware of that feature in Firefox. I know Opera has such a feature, but it’s like the second or third item in the right-click menu. Ctrl-click in Firefox is perfect! Thanks.

    (Just checked, in IE it’s Shift-click.)

    Er, I lied. Shift-clicking in IE does open the link in a new window, but in the foreground.
