|PostBack||PostBack (or Static) tabs are separate pages that are only loaded at the client if the tab is selected. This allows the developer to have a logical separation of information and reduced initial load time, but then pages are loaded when needed. Pressing the Back button in the browser may be tiresome if you have clicked through the tabs a fair bit before hand.|
|Dynamic||Dynamic tabs are driven by DHTML, (DIV tags which are
hidden and shown). These tabs are ideal for static data. Using them with more

|Frames||Frame tabs are driven by DHTML (IFRAME tags
which are hidden and shown). These tabs are ideal for separate, large or complex

pages are loaded at once, it is faster for the client to use, after the initial
increased load time. This also allows the developer to have a logical
separation of information.
This demo also includes the optional Home button and custom tab icons.
The above demos have a differing set of options set, just to show the different functionalities and looks available. You can mix a match to your desired look. (ie PostBack tabs which have icons and fixed width tabs or whatever). Enjoy!
