Not only tabs but you can split tab vertically by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+L and horizontally by pressing 
CTRL+SHIFT+T as many times you want. Closing active window by CTRL+SHIFT+R.


Some other URI-s, what can be typed onto Konqueror's address bar:
remote:/ - network folders
applications:/ - main menu contents
media:/ - removable media and FDD
trash:/  trash can
help:/kubuntu/ - Kubuntu help
about:konqueror - main Konqueror page
about:plugins - view Konqueror

config:/disable_overview - will disable Konqueror overview when starting - it must be clicked inside 
webpage
exec:/khelpcenter
exec:/kcmshell useragent - can change useragent
exec:/kcmshell ebrowsing - customize fast commands like gg: will open Google search (see below)
exec:/kdcop

system:/
system:/users
system:/home
system:/remote
system:/media

help:/kubuntu/internet
help:/kubuntu/office
help:/kubuntu/musicvideophotos
help:/amarok
help:/kaffeine
help:/kopete
help:/konversation
help:/ark
help:/k3b
help:/kpdf
help:/kubuntu/getting-help

...etc. - so you can ask most of KDE apps help.

By typing / you can continue by choosing folder names from drop down menu. It is like TAB at command 
line.

Type:
gg:KDE - it will search Google for word KDE
