I currently have 50 tabs open in my Firefox, 51 while I compose this.
5 of those tabs are WP.

Every so often I will trim those back to 4 or 5, but they multiply like rabbits after a cull.
Is that an Aspie thing?
Oddly, I'm not a multitasker. But I do task swap.

hmm.. how to make this a ppr thread................

It could be an Aspie thing. I've just done the count, and I have 67 open in 3 different browsers. Will be interesting to hear from everyone else.

It's just an "internet user" thing.

Not sure why this is in PPR though...

Whaaaaat? The number of tabs opened at once reported in this thread make my head spin. I very rarely go over five.

Too bad I can't do that to pretty much almost any PCs and internet connections I handled with.
I did about over 35 once, the PC crashed. I did once again in a different place in a different time, but the internet couldn't handle it all. :lol: If I did that on an internet shop, they'll kick me out.

Totally forgot about tab groups.
Woohoo! Now I have trimmed my 50 down to 40, in 6 tab groups.
Thank you.

My computer would not be able to take so many tabs--it would probably explode!

I doubt I ave ever gone beyond 10. I usually only have 2 or 3 open and sometimes go a bit beyond that. To many tabs give me a cluttered feeling. I want things streamlined so I close any tab I'm not actively using.

unless this is about the philosophy of how to manage such a large number, or the lack or religious devotion to one tab, i'd say that you don't.

[moved from PPR to random discussion]

as for me, i very rarely have more than 7 non-WP tabs open.

I wouldn't have responded to this important discussion if it hadn't been moved to RD as I'm too scared to visit PPR or PRR or whatever.

I start closing tabs when scrolling becomes necessary. I hate having to scroll. I also find it annoying when the tab/window is so small that it can only show the first letter of the title. However, I tend to keep windows/tabs open just in case, whenever I can.

Oh, I know wha'cha mean about being scared of visiting PPR----I was, until I landed on there, by accident (I clicked on the topic, from another page, and didn't know in what Forum, it was). When I realized, I thought: "Well, now since I'm here, maybe I can just take a little peek....." I had been wanting to read on that forum because I really LIKE discussing Religion, Politics, etc., but I was scared to. It really isn't so scary----REALLY----I was surprised----and now I go there, as often as I can. Go 'head----just take a little peek----you'll be kickin' your shoes off, and stayin' awhile!!

Sorry, Narrator----didn't mean to hijack your thread.....

I have 62 open in my current Chrome session and about a dozen open in Firefox, though the "feature" in Chrome that causes all the icons to go blank when too many are open tends to prevent me from opening more (unlike Firefox, which just allows me to scroll instead)

I try to minimize the number of tabs I have open. I currently have only 2 tabs open in Firefox, one for WP and one for Facebook so I can see if I get a message. I generally try to get rid of tabs when I'm done with them.

Wow ! That's a lot ! 8O
I usually have only 1 tab open, 3 at the most. I'm not exactly sure why, but I tend to visually and mentally prefer as few tabs open as possible on whichever browser I'm using; the fewer, the better ! :roll:
When I am done using certain tabs, I immediately get rid of them.
