I don't know where I read it (can't find the original thread), but a member here was asking about how difficult it would be to get Tabs in Safari. Another member mentioned that Netscape/Mozilla/AOL owned the patent on tabbed browsing. This is simply not true. In fact, they weren't even the first to use it.<br><br>If you use IE, you know what I'm talking about. They have had the "Page Holder" for years now and it is basically the same thing as tabs only not nearly as functional as the tabbed browsing feature found in Mozilla-based browsers.<br><br>That being said, I'm SURE that tabbed browsing has been requested several thousand times already since yesterday. I would imagine that Apple will either put it in or they have a very good technical reason why they aren't putting it in.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

i imagine the only thing that would hold them back now would be tabs causing a loss in speed. i doubt it would and believe that tabs are probably one of the top 2 request (with auto fill). by version 1.0???<br><br>as for the history of tabbed browsing, perhaps it is not known, but david hyatt (instrumental in the develoment of chimera and now working at apple and the first person credited with implenting tabs into regular builds) explains it: [color:"darkred"]Here's how the whole tabbed browsing thing happened. One night I finally downloaded an extension called MultiZilla (go check it out on mozdev.org. I was particularly impressed with a feature contained in MultiZilla called tabbed browsing. I started doing research and discovered NetCaptor, a tabbed browser that embedded WinIE. </a><br><br>here is the link to his whole weblog on the issue: <a href="http://www.mozillazine.org/weblogs/hyatt/2002_09_08_mozillian_archive.html">CLICK</a><br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I was the one who wondered whether the tabbed thing was proprietary. A question, not an assertion. Thanks for the info.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
