Tweaking the Tabs
Tweaking the Tabs
Tabbed browsing has been improved in Internet Explorer to make it easier to
identify and group related tabs together. This section shows you how to get
the most out of tabs in Internet Explorer. Specifically, I show you how to use
keyboard shortcuts and multitab homepages and how to customize the tabs to
it your needs.
Tab Keyboard Shortcuts
Keyboard shortcuts allow you to get the most out of the new Internet Explorer
tab interface by enabling you to do various lesser-known activities that can
save time. These keyboard shortcuts require no setup; they are already active
on your computer. Table 10-1 lists all the keyboard shortcuts that help you take
control of tabs, and explains how to start the Quick Tabs feature.
