Tabbed Browsing

With one single click, users are able to rearrange their tabs and duplicate or drag them, opening new windows. Tabs also function independently, so that one of them crashing does not affect others. When you open one tab from the one that is already open with an embedded link, it places the new tab next to the originating one and not at the end of the list. This leads to better organization of tabs.
