Why Dolphin should have tabs

Filed under

According to the Dolphin webpage, Dolphin is: "a file manager for KDE focusing on usability." To expand; from my experiences with it, along with words from developers, Dolphin is a light-weight file-manager, meant to be strictly used for file-browsing. It is not meant to be a replacement for Konqueror. While it all sounds very interesting, I still have a few concerns. My main issue is the fact that the majority of the developers are against adding tabs.
