KEEPING TABS ON THINGS is a free toolbar for Internet Explorer or Firefox that adds popular tabs to the top of your browser window. If you choose “sports,” for example, you can add a sports tab, choosing from a dozen popular web sites that feature sports news and results. The tabs are still there at the top of your browser screen when you next turn it on. There is a substantial list of preset tabs to choose from and you can add more.

This is one way of doing it. It’s a good way because it lets you have lots of choices that appear permanently on your browser’s home page and can be reached with just a click. Here are some other ways:

You can often add tabs to browsers simply by dragging the title of a particular web site onto the toolbar at the top of the screen.

Typing control-t also adds a new tab to the toolbar of any browser. Internet Explorer loses those new tabs, however, as soon as you exit. Firefox asks you if you want to keep the tabs for your next session. Other browsers have other approaches. It’s worth mentioning again that you can have as many web browsers as you want on your computer and they do not interfere with each other.
