Tech Talk: How many browser tabs?
I’m not sure how many of you are “fans” of browser tabs – that are relatively new features to modern day web browsers…
Browser tabs are the best invention yet for the web
Not sure how I managed before tabs became a feature. I vaguely recall myself having a few windows open – but never to the degree that I do in today’s day and age.
Tabs are the single best function of today’s browsers. They serve may purposes. Less windows, great reminders (I often keep tabs open for weeks – to serve as a visual “pokes” that I have an open item to attend to), and your “circuit” of regularly visited websites (social, gossip, email, weather, search and so on)…
But how many do you typically use? Because since web browsers are seemingly (and constantly) in a state of development – it can create problems if you’re a mega-power user and look at hundreds of sites daily.
On average – I have between 45-60 tabs open at a given point (see that graphic above? – it’s the 50 I had open when I wrote this piece)[poll id=”97″]
Lastly – are there any “tips” for managing browser tabs that you’d like to share with the community? I only ask, because I haven’t been able to find a “perfect” plugin that allows me to “rotate” through distinct functions on my Firefox browser yet… to the point where I can switch between “functionalities” in my daily life… I’d love to be able to flip back and forth between: Work, Tech, Data, Fun, Future, Followup, and so on – but all the ones I found didn’t quite fit the bill – is there anything out there that works perfectly?
The only reason I brought that up – is because some browsers start getting “annoying” when you push them to their limits… it’s amazing that after all the years – they cannot figure out a lightweight way to handle the number of sites you like or need to read – without smashing your system and eating gobs of memory.
Besides RSS readers or other centralized viewing platform – how do you manage your daily internet surfing?
