DOMTab, Automated JavaScript Tab Replacement

DOMtab is a JavaScript that turns a list of links connected to content sections into a tab interface. The script removes any “back to top” links in the section and automatically hides all but the first one when the page is loaded. You can use as many tabbed menus on the page as you want to.

DOMtab seems to work as intended. I can see a few places where this would be really useful.

    Looks nice, although lack of back button/deeplinking support is a bit of a problem.

    Yep, it definitely won’t work for some things. But for others, where deeplinking isn’t part of the equation (such as a control panel, or something), it might work wonders.

    Ah, good to hear. Strange though, as I have made no change.

    Add a little bit of CSS for some rounded edges and you got yourself a nice little nav bar

    DOMtab is indeed very good. I have just used it for a site I am developing and it is very flexible by its definition. Combined with some CSS goodness like the sliding doors technique it can work very well.

    I like domtab too! It works great for product detail pages on e-commerce sites. You can add tabs for ingredients, shipping rates, tips/info, etc…I have been having fun working on this site: VashonOrganics.com.
