Huxley completely loses his tit if he has more than like... two tabs open at once. Meanwhile I'll have 20 or 30 up. Truthfully I've gotten a lot better about it lately; I think Huxley has rubbed off on me a bit and now I try to keep my open tabs under ten. I probably average about six or seven these days.

WHAT SIDE OF THIS GLORIOUS DEBATE DO YOU FALL ON? :omghey:

Having multiple tabs open is a sign of moral flaccidity. I have one or two open, and sometimes a third if one of the other links to a news article or something!

I usually have three or four at a time. The only time I have a bunch is if I am loading a bunch of pictures from somewhere that doesn't have a slide show deal going on.

The only person that I have seen with dozens of tabs up is edczxcvbnm, but he doesn't do it too often, at least when I am hanging out with him. I jokingly give him grief for it, but it doesn't bug me.

Also, I think that--OH SH--

I have a couple tabs open for my browsers. I will sometimes go up to ten at most, but then it appears to clutter my space so I remove a couple to get back to a more respectable number of tabs.

I usually have about a dozen. I try to keep as few as possible, but I'm usually doing a lot of things at once and I have a bunch of news articles and forums open. I can't go too long without my knowledge fix.

I don't like to keep many up, unless I'm doing a search for something. When I'm here, I look at the recently updated topics and open each one in a separate tab so I don't have to keep hitting the back button.

I usually have at least 6 browser windows open at a time; I open a new window when I have so many tabs they don't all fit on the screen at the same time.

Mind you, this is on a 13" macbook, so that's maybe 6-10 tabs per window, most of them static containing information I need to refer to on a regular basis for FFXI purposes.

I have three or four. I open a lot in the beginning when I first open my browser, but that's to read comics and to check my email. After that I have, TDF, EoFF, #eoff, and then one other tab based on my mood. If I'm on wikipedia and I'm fishing, I can have anywhere from 6 to 20 tabs.

I have a problem with eoff. When checking a section i just make new tabs on teh thread links then i read it and hit the index once done then move to the next tab before it loads. I usually end up with several tabs on the index. Like right now, I have 7 tabs open. 6 are eoff. 3 of those are on the index. OOPS.

I have at least four open at work. Work email, personal email, 1-3 tabs of our internal administration system and at least one tab of our webapp that we're developing (but sometimes upwards of 6-7 depending on task). I also have youtube open a lot playing music. Rainymood too, right now. When I check EoFF I open my new posts bookmark and open all the threads I'm interested in in tabs, and close them as I go.

I have 9 right now. Twitter and Facebook are usual constants. I have two GameFaqs tabs open right now that have been open for a couple weeks or so while I play that particular game. A recent constant has been Dinosaur Comics, I've been reading a couple every now and then.

Typically, in the morning I will read through twitter and open a bunch of news/blog/technical paper links and then read them over the next couple hours or whatever, so I have like around 20 tabs open for a little while. If I don't read a particular item but want to later, it'll stay open for another few days.

I'm limited in my maximum tab capacity only by virtue of having a netbook. I cannot abide superfluous tabs, however. It annoys me more than any other stupid computer habit.

Pike
08-10-2012, 10:20 AM
Yeah, like many of you I have the most tabs open when I'm here at Effoff checking new posts. I'll open all the ones I'm interested in and new tabs and close them as I go. Depending on how many new posts there are, that can add up to a lot of tabs.

NorthernChaosGod
08-10-2012, 10:33 AM
It depends on what I'm doing. During "normal" browsing I'll have maybe 2-4 tabs open, but when I check places like EoFF I just open every thread in a new tab and close them as I finish.

Shlup
08-10-2012, 10:42 AM
Right now I have six tabs open, which is probably about average. I browse EoFF by opening every thread I want to read in its own tab.

Shauna

I don't have too many open, usually 1 to 3. Facebook, and two others to pass the time while nothing is happening on FB. :P

Faris
08-10-2012, 01:06 PM
It differs, but usually somewhere between 1 and 10. At work I tend to have two different browsers open with several tabs as well.

Slothy
08-10-2012, 01:33 PM
I average probably 30-40 at a time that I just leave open. It'll go up or down depending on if I've read what they contain and see fit to end their meager existence. I browse all forums in new tabs, and close them when I'm done typically. Same goes for news stories as I generally dislike the constant loading of using the back button. I also despise using bookmarks because I either have to open a bookmark menu and find the one I want or leave it open all of the time and I refuse to waste the screen space on it. Tabs are simply faster and easier.

Jessweeee♪
08-10-2012, 02:57 PM
However many I can fit before they start shrinking to fit the screen. That bugs me. But at work I use Opera and the tabs stack so I can have that many tabs squared! I wish other browsers had stacking tabs :(

Jinx
08-10-2012, 03:30 PM
When I'm reading up new posts in EoFF, I can have as many as 20 open. Same when I'm internet shopping.

Other times...maybe 3 or 4.

Steve
08-10-2012, 03:47 PM
What is wrong with you neophytes! I've got one tab open for EoFF ever! Unless checking a link out. I have 6 tabs open total one of which really I could just fire thunderbird up for instead (gmail). Two will close once I watch the video link contained within the second tab or the tab with the video will be closed and the other re-purposed.

I go to /pol/ sometimes but I never actually read it. I go there just so I can make threads called things like "So when did you grow out of libertarianism, /pol/?" and then leave and play vidya. I usually don't even bother reading any responses. Easiest board to troll.

Huxley, how do you function on the internet with less than five tabs open? Something is wrong with you.

I have eight tabs open. I do not discriminate with tab limits.

First of all, it's "fewer", not "less".

Second of all, because I can just sit and look at one page that I want to look at, then I move on to the next one. This is not a difficult concept?

I leave tabs open for later review, if I don't have time to check it out at the moment.

And then sometimes people close them. :stare:

You mad Huxley?

My netbook and desktop would explode if I tried having 160 tabs open at one time.

I haven't really kept track, but I probably have between 3-8 tabs open at most times while browsing. I have six open right now. I don't like having too many open, so I'll start to close older ones when I get up to about 10 or 12.

Slothy
08-11-2012, 01:19 AM
30-40

To be fair, I leave tabs open forever without closing them even if I'm done and I usually scroll through the ones I'm not using so fast that I honestly had no idea it was so high. 160 tabs is surprisingly not as many as you'd think when you scroll through at high speed looking for the one you want. Incidentally, I'd say I know the sites that most of them are open to and in what order off by heart.

Some people might get confused with so many tabs open, but I know where everything I need is all of the time.

EDIT: I should mention too that I have Firefox set to not load tabs until I click on them when I start it up so my RAM usage is never very high. Maybe 200-300MB. Out of curiosity I just loaded every tab to see what it would jump to. Apparently the answer is around 1.6GB. Good thing I've got 8GB to go around I guess (not that it would ever be needed for it). :D

I have a serious problem with opening far more tabs than is healthy for my computer, for mostly the same reasons as Vivi listed. I probably have over fifty tabs open right now, and would have over a hundred except I just closed a bunch of them. It gets to the point where closing them all at once causes Chrome to lag for several seconds or even minutes.

I believe they set that to default as of the last update. So it may already be checked. Just a warning!

P.S. Vivi wins the thread. Yes, this was actually a contest to see who had the most tabs open. Congratulations on your victory!

43.75 Maxed out Browsers of Chrome, 68 firefox tabs. I have no idea how many that is total, but the war is on. I can name most of the tabs as well.

It really depends on what I'm doing with my browser at the time. The tabs I have open tend to be anywhere between 20 and 60 particularly if I'm doing university related stuff and have to check out various net pages and EBSCOhost links or if I'm looking for inspiration for tGA posts and other creative writing. :)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the way it works now. Whenever I restore my browser the tabs don't load until I click on them.
