Tab based user interfaces have become a very popular means to browse information that is spread among multiple pages.

However, traditional tab based Web user interfaces require reloading the whole pages when the user clicks on a tab to see the associated content.

This class provides an AJAX based solution to switch between tabs without reloading the whole pages, thus making the user interface more elegant and slick.
