I haven't actually used this code since sometime in 2011.
Because of that, I can offer little to no support on it's use and am
no longer updating other than to accept pull requests other people issue.
If you need to also have hover interactions (ie. if you want to write
code that makes the tabs pause on hover), I wrote another plugin for
that too: https://github.com/cmcculloh/jQuery-UI-Tabs-Hover
