Stacked Safari Tabs is a series of image macros that features a screenshot of several web browser tabs in the cascading layout found on Apple's Safari software, which, when viewed together, create one image.
Apple introduced the cascading tabs on their Safari web browser with the release of iOS 7 on September 18th, 2013. Shifting from the software's original horizontal layout for mobile browser tabs, the new design for tabs creates a vertical, cascading effect, which lets the user their various tabs in a list (shown below).
On November 16th, 2017, Instagram  account @williambottini posted several pictures of Safari tabs, which when shown together form image macros, most notably a cheeseburger. The cheeseburger post (shown below) received more than 60 likes and was reposted by several accounts who spread the image.
The following day, November 17th, 2017, Twitter  user @badvibesforever tweeted the cheeseburger and received more than 40,400 retweets and 39,000 likes in four days. The image was quickly shared on Tumblr  (39,000 notes), FunnyJunk,  (15,000 views) and 9GAG  (12,000 points).
On November 19th, 2017 the image appeared on the /r/meirl subreddit . Following the post, more Redditors began submitting variations to the subreddit (examples below).
The same day, Instagram  account @thefunnyintrovert posted @williambottini's original image with the text, "Have you ever been so broke you just." The post received over 116,000 likes in two days.
