tabbed browsing

A function in a Web browser that hides the current Web page behind a tab and presents a new blank window for continued browsing. All browsers keep track of pages visited, and clicking Back and Forward moves through them. However, after a long period of Web surfing, the pages of most interest are often interspersed between others. Tabbed browsing creates multiple browsing sessions within the same browser window.

Multiple Browser Windows
Opening multiple browser windows has always been and still is an alternative to tabbed browsing. Users with large monitors or dual monitors often prefer two or more full pages on screen at the same time (see desktop).
