I often need to open many finder windows at the same time and my desktop becomes cluttered.
Is there any way to get tabs in Finder so one window can host multiple folders?

Update: As shown in File Menu and being consistent with the rest of the macOS shortcuts, command+T will open a new tab. Tabbed Finder was introduced in OS X Mavericks in 2013.
TotalFinder "brings tabs to your native Finder". It's commercial software, however. There are some other Finder replacements as well.
A free alternative for OS X 10.6.8 to 10.8.2 is also XtraFinder, which supports Tabs as well.
it was already mentioned but PathFinder is an incredible app. Plus there is a mac bundle site with it on discount right now. MacPromo Bundle
