There are so many wonderful things to track and keep tabs on! Netvibes dashboards are so good at helping you monitor things, that soon you’ll want to add more – more apps, more news, more analytics!
But when you have too many rows of tabs, the widget view on your dashboard can become a bit cluttered and most of all, you’ll lose precious space.
Good news: Our new Tab Navigator is here!
In a nutshell:
Tabs are now displayed in ONE scrollable line to save space.
Click on the left or right arrow to scroll one tab at a time. Double-click to scroll faster (or do a long click on your tablet). Or you can even scroll with your mouse wheel!
Click the dropdown menu to reveal a scrollable list of all your tabs – each showing real-time unread counts so you’ll always know when new content appears.
Long Distance Drag & Drop
Click an app, drag it to the Tab Navigator, and hover over the desired tab (either from the dropdown menu or scroll bar). The destination tab will pop up and you can drop the app exactly where you want to. Hint: You can even use Drag-and-Follow to create new Twitter searches on different tabs, organized by topic.
Completely revamped “edit” section
The “edit” section has been redisgned, it’s now clearer & much easier to use.
Advanced tip: for Netvibes Premium users, you can also do Drag-and-Compare analytics across tabs. Just drag the bottom right corner of any analytic app over the Tab Navigator to pick your tab, then drop it on top of any other analytic app to create a new pivot graph.
And of course, this new feature is 100% compatible with touch devices (iPad, tablets) and current themes, as you can see in the examples below.
