There might be scenarios where it's desirable to move content off the
screen, but not hide it completely with display:none - for example,
someone might use the method to move context information out of the
viewport, but leave the content available to provide context for
screen reader users.

For the "More Options" section, it would be better to use the same
technique you're using to hide the tab panels (display: block and
display: none), rather than using slideOut and slideIn.
