allow tabbing in gnome-terminal shell script

I'm a beginner shell script so please help.
I am trying to make a shell script that would open a gnome-terminal and a few apps that i wan't to view when i sign on. I want it to use gnome-terminal since it has tabbing, but i don't know what to add to open the programs in a new tab.
# /bin/usr/bash
gnome-terminal naim
gnome-terminal alpine
gnome-terminal lynx
# best site in the world
how could i set it up so they all opened in a different tab in one gnome-terminal??
