In our very specific use case for a certain audience, users can set settings though interactive graphs. These graphs have a set name and a number. There could be as many as 10 graphs. For reasons these graphs are called 'groups'
Now each graph is allowed to be different so I can't group the tabs. I think having a lot of tabs is kind of subjectively ugly and it might be cumbersome to switch between graphs. It also takes up a lot of horizontal space which might be an issue for smaller screens (although all our users are desktop users at the moment).
Is there a navigational UX alternative to having a row of tabs?
