What is the Tabs widget?

The Tabs widget allows you to organize and divide content into tabs horizontally or vertically. This feature makes it easier for users to navigate through different sections of your webpage. You can customize the tabs’ appearance, add text, and even images.

If you activate the nested elements experimental feature, the default Tabs widget is replaced with the new Tabs widget, which can include nested elements. For more details, see Tabs widget with nested containers.

Common use case

Tom is designing a product page for an online store and is looking for a creative and unique way to showcase product details. 

They then use tabs to organize information about the product into different sections such as “Product Description,” “Features,” “Specifications,” and “Reviews”. Each tab contains relevant details about the product, including its description, key features, technical specifications, and customer reviews. 

This approach allows users to easily navigate between different aspects of the product without feeling overwhelmed by too much information all at once. It provides a clean and organized layout, enhancing the user experience and increasing the likelihood of converting visitors into customers.
