And that's why dwm has tags, which in the end are multidimensional tabs.

I personally would use chromium in a multi-window instead of a
multi-tabbed setup, if it didn't take around 2 seconds for it to
initiate a new window.
Testing this way out with surf I really enjoyed it and found out that
you're much more aware of what you're doing and not stacking dozens of
tabs in one window.

Nevertheless, I am sure there are use-cases for tabbed I'm not aware of
One thing is clear though: It's not dwm's task to supply tabbing.
