When Yahoo redesigned its webmail service two months ago, it got rid of tabs, a feature that allowed users to multitask while writing and reading e-mails, but which Yahoo felt it often confused users when they had too many open.
Well, the tabs feature is back and hopefully this time it’s back to stay.
On Thursday, the company reintroduced the feature with three small, excited words: “Tabs are back!” Jeff Bonforte, Yahoo’s senior vice president of communication products, wrote in a blog post. Now the e-mail service allows users to turn on the tabs feature if they so choose.
Yahoo has added a “preview all” that allows users to see a thumbnail version of all the tabs they have open in one screen. The tabs feature will be available globally “over the next few days,” wrote Bonforte.
