Tabs on web browser...


#21

I like that you’re really leaning into it.


#22

Right now I have 27 in the laptop and in my phone … the browser is not counting. There is a smiling face where it should be the number of tabs

Just for today. And just now I’ve noticed that. OMG


#23

My kind of humor.

Too many tabs drives me NUTS.


#26

Define too many, i have 100+ open right now. That is below my “time to close them all” limit.


#27

Lol, I have the :smiley: meaning over 99 tabs on just one not counting my laptop (27) and pad (24). :no_mouth::pensive: I erase and find myself back at over 99 by the end of the day. I just need to know everything once I get on one thing and then the next.


#28

And thanks because I need to start deleting/bookmarking right now.


#29

Its and endless flow, it will stack up for me every time! But it feels good to get ride of them every now and then.

I did realize that I’m a collector. Links, pinterest, games (and achievements in games), books, ideas, news, information, etc… i can (and i will!) collect a lot of stuff :smiley:

Once the tabs start looking like a Toblerone bar, it’s gone way too far for me. I like to be able to (ideally) read enough of each tab title to know what that tab is. I don’t have the patience to cycle through lots of tabs to find what I want. My left hand is always prepared to Ctrl-F4 tabs that I’m done with.

Now that being said, I often have two browser windows open, one on each monitor, with different uses for each. Other times I might use multiple browser windows just to group things together (e.g. work tasks).


#31

Ok, I have 24 tabs atm. But it used to be much worse. I use a chrome extension called “OneTab” that will reduce all the open tabs one has to a singe tab were the links are stored on that tabs page so you can go back to them if you really want to.


#32

I’ve only got 23 open rn, but that’s at the low end, I regularly get up into the 90s. I have an extension called Tree Style Tabs that lets me group them together, otherwise I’d be completely lost.


#33

HAHA i just posted something about this being a metaphor for my ADHD brain last week but I also relate physically.
I have three different windows currently on my laptop. My main window has my necessity tabs up like email and college website with other tabs for things i don’t want to forget to look at, some of which have been up for weeks.
I also have two more windows open, both with different sources pertaining to different papers that I have to write for school. I don’t want to have to redo my searches so I have at least 10-20 tabs open on those windows until i want to narrow down my sources and actually start my papers. ADHD and college is like living in an organized mess lol.


#34

this sounds amazing i need to try this. I always have so many tabs that I want to save for later or don’t want to forget about haha


#35

I just don’t understand what people do with so many tabs. IMHO, when you need extensions to deal with your massive number of open pages - you’ve got a problem :slight_smile:

I’m also someone who tries to keep my taskbar/system-tray/desktop nice and tidy with only commonly used things. Too many things and I get lost trying to find what I want. Then it’s too much like real life (e.g. my car, home, desk) which are like 90-tab browsers in the real world :slight_smile: At least the computer I can easily control things.


#36

mayeb that’s why I like having so many tabs, it’s like a mess that I can instantly clean up :stuck_out_tongue:


#37

I have 41 on my iPad (for some reason… I don’t even remember opening half of them), 53 on my phone (+ another 32 in private browsing) but I generally tend to have much less on my laptop (mainly because I use chrome on my laptop and its makes a lot of noise) but I think (this is from memory so take it at face value) I currently have about three windows open and about 5-8 tabs open in each so around 20 tabs ish on my laptop.


#38

58 tabs… even though I’m constantly trying to close tabs and keeping them to a minimum


#39

I have 16 at home right now, but last week I had almost 30. At work I routinely have about 35, not counting the 12 that are pinned, plus 4-8 more in a separate window on another monitor. My phone has 42 last time I looked. I’m pretty sure QuteBrowser saved my last session with 20-something tabs about Django and Python (an unfinished project I’ll totally get back to this… next… some weekend).

And not a webbrowser, but I use a program at work called Tmux that lets me open command line sessions side by side in windows and tabs (I work in IT). I think my high point was 7 different sessions, averaging 3 tabs per session with each tab averaging 3 windows.

I regularly hear at work “omg how do you have so many tabs open”. I never say but it’s because I will either literally forget this ever existed if I close the tab or remember in 5 months… it has to stay open until it is ticked off the to-do list.
