Thread: IE7 Will Have Tabbed Browsing

  1. #1
    from the sir-your-numbers-are-slipping dept.
    loconet writes that early yesterday morning, "Dean Hachamovitch, IE product unit manager, confirmed that IE7, like Opera and Firefox first did years ago, will have tabbed browsing as one of its new features. Asa Dotzler,from Mozilla, points out that Dean reminds IE users who have not upgraded to XP that tabbed browsing can be added to IE through 3rd-party add-ons." cryptoz adds a link to this InformationWeek story which says that the tabs will be very "'basic' due to fears from Microsoft that tabbed browsing might scare off too many users. The feature is only being included because IE is slipping in the browser share market."

    Cool. I'll then be able to ditch my 3rd-party software.

    I have tabbed browsing already in IE6.

    Not really. The browser is already theirs.

    IE already belongs to Microsoft. No shit?


    I would imagine, from the blurb RealitY posted, that Microsoft won't be making the tabs default, more that the user can enable them if he or she wants. This would indicate that MS is still going to be aiming at the newbie end of the market and as such means that folk who make a living out of browser exploits will still target IE, regardless of further slips to their market share.

    Good news for Firefox users.

    Don't know why you hate tabs but there is an extension to disable them.

    Clicky.

    Anyone who installs this extension please take note... from the comments in the link, it sounds like that uninstalling the extension doesn't re-enable the Tabs..

    I can't see why anyone would prefer tabs. I agree with the past few comments that they SUCK!

    Viva la IE6
