Browse the web tab-style with Mozilla! Web Browsers
The latest builds of Mozilla have enabled a very cool feature - tabbed web site browsing. The concept is quite similar to Excel, wherein multiple worksheets are displayed in one workspace, and are chosen for display by clicking on a tab at the bottom of the window. Mozilla now offers that very same feature for browsing the web. It's an excellent idea, especially for those on smaller screens where windows can quickly proliferate and get lost. Now you can do all your browsing in one main window.

To create a tab, simply hit control-T (not command-T!). Once created, click on a tab to activate it. Switching among the tabbed pages is nearly instantaneous. You can even switch tabs while loading a page in one tab; Mozilla treats each tab as an independent window, so that multiple tabs can all be loading simultaneously. To delete a tab, simply close the window it's displaying (using the "X" at the right edge of the row of tabs).

This functionality in Mozilla is a small subset of a third-party product called MultiZilla, which has many additional features. It should be possible to get this running on Mozilla on OS X, but I haven't tried as of yet. To try out tabbed browsing, you'll need to get the latest nightly build for OS X, as tabs are not in the latest milestone (0.94) release.
