    How many tabs do you have open right now?

    Lower than usual actually, but I just got done looking at everything in my feed.

    Three.

    I hate having more than five tabs open unless I'm in the middle of researching something. Makes me feel all overloaded.

    102. That is about the usual amount.

    Would that be a really wide screen @daemon? Being able to see the tab icons limits how many I keep open.

    Just a 13" laptop screen. But I have several browser windows open. One window for social networks and forums, one window for whatever topic I am researching at the moment, one window for whatever class I am doing homework for, one window for miscellaneous YouTube videos, etc.

    I'm a great one for clearing tabs, so only 2 just now. But if I'm in the middle of researching, going from one thing to another in quick succession, I sometimes run out of tabs, and get told by my browser that I need to shut some down before I can open any more! So it all depends, really. But I do tend to close my main window often and reopen it when I'm moving to something new. Don't know why, really. Just habit?

    Four. I don't like having a ton of tabs open at once. I feel like I'm wasting the Internet. I had to have eight open earlier today and it was driving me nuts.

    About 15 right now (of which more than two thirds are forum threads, or forum-related). I usually keep 1 or 2 windows with up to 10-12 tabs each. More than that and I find it hard to get a nice overview of the pages I have open. If only there was a (working) browser that supported tab-stacking... (I miss you, Opera 12, :love:).

    Apparently 20 across 8 chrome windows.
    I've got worse with windows 8 now that I can't see in my task bar how many windows I've got open at once without right-clicking on the chrome icon.

    10. Most of them are writing related.

    Six. One streaming site, reddit, and a separate forum.

    Counting them all took a while (thanks to having several groups of tabs running as usual); and the grand total is... 85, ugh. I really need to close some of these :superthink:

    3, but I just got online good. I usually average about 6 or 7 at a time
