Tabulate – Brings ‘Open In New Tab’ To iPhone’s Browser

I’d been meaning to try out the new Tabulate bookmarklet for the iPhone and iPod Touch for quite a while, and finally got a chance to today.   Tabulate brings a little bit of ‘tabbed browsing’ to the iPhone, and is a pretty slick little add-on to have around.

I couldn’t quite get my head round the benefit of this one when I saw it mentioned at various iPhone sites – it seems easy enough to use ‘New Page’ to open a new site while maintaining various others open as well – but now I’ve tried it, I sure can.  It’s the ‘Open In New Tab’ feature that is the really useful part of the bookmarklet – as it lets you keep Site A open while choosing to open a link on Site A in a new browser window / page. 

To use Tabulate you need to:

  • Visit the Inventive Labs site HERE, and drag the bookmarklet into your Safari Bookmarks bar
  • Sync the iPhone (and ensure you are syncing Safari Bookmarks undetabulate_demo r the Info tab in the iTunes iPhone section)
  • Then when you’re browsing on the iPhone, go to the Tabulate bookmarklet and select it – which will add a small orange icon to the top left of your page. Once you click a link on the page, you’ll get the 3-button Tabulate box – where you can choose to open the link in the current page, in a new page / tab, or flag it for opening later (later you just tap the little orange Tabulate icon to open these).

Very handy.   For a demo and all the other info you need, you can visit Inventive Labs’ page for Tabulate:
