The reason why tabbed browsing is tempting cause you can group tasks 
better, e.g. all places can be opened in one window, so you don't have 
to search for the right location in the taskbar; you know all locations 
are opened in 1 window. In case you open 4 locations (not a rare 
scenario), tabbed browsing can reduce it to 2 -- grouping by tasks.

I use it extensively in KDE (my current DE) and missed it when using XFCE
