Microsoft offers tabbed browsing--in IE 6
With the version of MSN Search Toolbar made available Wednesday, IE 6 gains the ability to open numerous Web pages within a single window, each selectable by a small tab at the top of the window.
IE has not had a major feature upgrade in more than three years. Last month, Microsoft confirmed speculation that it would offer tabbed browsing in the upcoming IE 7.
Microsoft was not immediately available to comment on the new toolbar.
The MSN toolbar tabs for IE 6 were first reported by BetaNews.
Microsoft in November raised the possibility of updating IE 6's features through add-ons like the toolbar, though it disavowed any specific plans to do so.
