How to Manage Web Pages in Multiple Tabs on the Galaxy Tab Browser

By Dan Gookin

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Browser app uses a tabbed interface to display more than one web page at a time. When you open Browser, you are likely to see various tabs marching across the Browser app’s screen, just above the Address bar.


Here’s how you work the tabbed interface:

  • To open a blank tab, touch the plus button to the right of the last tab.

  • To open a link in a new tab, long-press that link. Choose the command Open in New Tab from the menu that appears.

  • To open a bookmark in a new window, long-press the bookmark and choose the command Open in New Tab.

You switch between tabs by choosing one from the top of the screen.

Close a tab by touching its X (Close) button; you can close only the tab you’re currently viewing.

  • The tabs keep marching across the screen, left to right. You can scroll the tabs to view the ones that have scrolled off the screen.

  • New tabs open using the home page that’s set for the Browser application.

  • For secure browsing, you can open an incognito tab: Press the Menu icon button and choose the command New Incognito Tab. When you go incognito, the Browser app won’t track your history, leave cookies, or other evidence of which web pages you’ve visited in the incognito tab. A short description appears on the incognito tab page describing how it works.
