Internet Explorer 7 has tabs

The internet Explorer 7 blog is reporting that Internet Explorer 7 will have tabs when released.

What’s funny about the blog is that they say:

In general, I think tabs are a great idea. I liked them a lot in Office dialogs and in Excel in the early 90’s.

No mention of the tabs in Firefox, Safari or Opera (the other main browsers)! it is almost as if they are trying to say – “we had tabs in the early 90’s, we invented tabs”

‘Fess up, Microsoft is dead late with tabbed browsing and the current Internet Explorer 6 is a lame duck.

As one commenter on the blog said:

Stop gloating about how you’ve caught up with five years ago and begin addressing the bigger issues, i.e.: CSS and XHTML
