English term or phrase: tab - as in "tabbed browser"
The term refers to the exposed parts of the multiple layers displayed in many current browsers, where each tab represents, effectively, a window for a site visited but not necessarily currently active. Almost all current browsers have the option to open links in a new tab or a new window, either in the foreground or the background. A window displaying many tabs (you probably have one in front of you now) looks a little like a very foreshortened view of a stack of folders; the term 'tab' may be a generalization of the term used to refer to the proud part of a manila/file folder. I'm looking for confirmation of a translation (to Quebec French, rather than continental); what I've been using is "onglet" - as in the telegraphic "Ferme fenêtre/onglet". I can't recall where I picked up that translation, but have seen it used on French-language sites not evidently housed in Quebec. babel translates "onglet" as "mitre", which I suspect is the cone-head headgear warn by some Catholic clergy (if they live long enough). I've tried the reverse - English "tab" to the French equivalent - but babel spits out "?quette". And past experience with babel suggests that the "?" isn't necessarily a single character, or the translation is too literal, or 'continental'... L'Office de la Langue Francaise, the last word in French in Quebec ;), also suggests the "onglet" translation, but there search/translation facility doesn't provide specific evidence that the "tab" being referred to is the tab of a tabbed browser.
