How many Tabs do you currently have open

How many Tabs do you currently have open? I’m terrible at having way too many tabs open at any one time. I start the day with one and before I know it I’ve got half dozen open. Then from there it grows, however after some time I do close down and start again. I’m often going back and forth between different websites. Doing a bit here and a bit there. I currently have 16 tabs open, 5 for Mylot, 6 for Etsy, Yahoo for email, Twitter, Swagbuks, Zazzle and Fotolia How many Tabs do you currently have open?

Wow that's a lot of tabs open. I currently have one open. Seems sometimes the computer runs better with less.

I have 9 but often have double that. I open one or two pages of discussions, like, respond/comment then shut them all and start again. I really only work on here although Word is open and whatever it is where my photos are stored - and let's not forget Spider Solitaire.

I often use several other programs at the same time, such as Excel, Word, Media Player etcetera, but only use one browser tab.

@Asylum I have word, maybe photoshop, lightroom and so on. I guess it all depends on your computer, I have quad core laptop with 16GB of ram and I think that makes the difference.

@kevin1877uk It certainly does Kevin. My desktop computer has a i7 4 Gb processor and 16 Gb RAM, so there is no shortage of system resources.

@sugartoes maybe that is why I keep getting a message saying "internet explorer has stopped working" and then I lose my post. I hate that. I might only have yahoo open and nothing else. I should really stay off the computer.

I currently have six. Two for myLot (which is unusual, I keep opening tabs until I have 10 or so and then I close them all again and start over), One for craft supplies I was drooling over, One for some information I need for a class I'm responsible for this afternoon. One document and one empty...wait there's a New Tab open, how did THAT happen?

@ramapo17 I find it easier to open the links in my notifications in new tabs so that it's easier to keep track of what I have already followed up.

I can't function without using tabs. I have one page with three tabs open to my mail, Facebook and Ansa (the Italian news site) Then two more pages with ten tabs each, all open to different discussions here on myLot.

Right now I have 5. I usually have a lot open too but not that many. I don't think I could keep track of that many. I usually have about 10 open on my tablet just because I don't know how to get back to those webpages on my tablet. Or I can't remember the webpages name or log in information so I don't want to close it. I need to learn to write things down.

I jst don't close them and sometimes I do wonder why I have that many open really. 5 is a good number and way better than 16.

@ramapo17 Yeah, your husband is mistaken, hon! I promise! The reason you get hacked is because you are predictable. I am willing to bet I can guess your password to at least one of your accounts... Remember, like a bad guy, I can follow your tracks and see where you have been. (You really should run Spybot and clean those up, Nancy!) Then I just need to try the passwords I believe you might pick and I guarantee I will get at least one of them right. Oops! I was right! I just opened your Fb account! (I just closed that tab back up, hon) You need to change that password, hon... Sorry, I thought I would be able to open myLot with that password, but you fooled me there!

I rarely have more than one tab open at a time. There have been times that I have opened a second tab to check something, but always close it again immediately afterwards.

I have never understood why people open more than one tab for a site Anna. You can only work on one page at a time.

@Asylum Because, while I read a discussion, another loads in another tab, in one tab I keep the notifications opened, and in another the new discussions, so I quickly switch through the various tasks. This is how I can do so much on this site.

I think a lot depends on your computer and what spec it is to how it would cope with the load.
