That's better but it still sucks.  Tabs and wizards are horrible
simply because they place unnecessary restrictions on your workflow.
You cannot view various combinations of widgets at once; you are
required to view only one set at a time.

In some cases this makes sense, particularly when dealing with users
that have less-than-average knowledge of the topic at hand and don't
want to overload them with 15 entries at once..  In this case I cannot
come up with any justification for tabs or wizards.
