Web browsers - Tabbed browsing

Many people still open their links within a single tab. A bad habit that needs to be changed!
In this page you will learn how to make an optimal use of your web browser, thanks to tabbed browsing.


Open links in new tabs:
  • Right click> "Open link in new tab".
  • NB: You can also choose to open links in new incognito tabs.

Navigate through your tabs:
  • Click to select a tab or use a keyboard shortcut (CTRL + 1 to select the 1st tab, CTRL + 2 to go to the second tab,.....)
