How to create Tabbed Content With Read More Content With CSS And Jquery

Sometimes we want to make the posting page become more simple in displaying the content. For that we can use tabbed content so that our content for some tabs. 

Usually tabbed content is widely used by blogs and websites that present software content, but of course can be used by other types of blogs and web. 

Well this time we will additionally create tabbed content with CSS and JQuery, I will also add read more content with the background gradient at the bottom by using CSS3.
