I should be more precise:

A window gets a tab for each buffer that is displayed in it.  (e.g., even if
you open Aquamacs by double-clicking an associated file, Aquamacs displays
*scratch* momentarily before your opened file, so both *scratch* and your
intended file will have tabs initially.) A tab is removed when explicitly
closed, or when the corresponding buffer is killed.

The tab bar is hidden for any window that has only a single tab.

If you prefer to switch buffers using keystrokes, that's great.  Tabs might
still be useful, as they provide a clear and always-present indication of
cyclic ordering per window, so you don't have to "hunt" through your open
buffers, or type any portion of buffer names.  I find this helpful -- YMMV.
(Tab cycling keys are Cmd-Shift-[/] or Cmd-Opt-left/right)
