IE 7 to include tabbed browsing

March 10, 2005

Paul Thurrott (who’s usually pretty confident when he reports stuff like this) says at his SuperSite for Windows that Internet Explorer (IE) 7 will include tabbed browsing (via umw).

Tabbed browsing is among the many new features that Opera has helped make popular and later copied by the other mainstream browsers. All major browsers have support for this feature except for, most notably, IE, which has stubbornly refused to add it until now.

There are many alternative interfaces to IE, such as the Avant browser, Netcaptor, and Phaseout, that include this feature in their releases.

During his keynote address at the annual RSA Conference, Bill Gates announced that Microsoft would ship the next version of IE before the new Windows version, Longhorn, becomes available.

    Tabbed browsing is not pioneered by Opera but NetCaptor. Opera is just another follower… 😉

    Has no one previously spanked you about the fact that it’s MDI that Opera does, rather than ‘tabbed browsing’? 😀

    They quite rightly distinguish the 2 though, because the behaviour is different enough to be significant, and really they mean different things.
