    I'm just curious how people use their browsers. I usually keep tabs open for the main sites I visit most frequently. I'll usually leave a tab open if it's something I want to share with someone later, or I'll just bookmark it if it's a lot of information I plan to use.

    I just hope I made the options flexible enough. I didn't really think I'd have to make all that many after 20 tabs, but if you feel I should add more options, let me know.

    Sadly, I typically have 50-60 tabs open. Right now? 53. I think I just have a bad habit of opening new tabs for any links I see (middle mouse click FTL)

    I never "keep tabs open" on certain websites; I don't leave my computer on overnight so there's no point. I just use them to load stuff in the background while going through an index. Which happens a lot, on average I have about 6 open at a time. If it gets higher than 12-ish I'll go read a few of them down before carrying on so the tab titles don't get too small to read [​IMG].

    Right now about 400 over a couple of windows.

    I tend to store up news stories and comments I want to read across several sites,newsgroups /newsposts I want to browse, threads I want to read, guides I want to read, reviews I want to read...........

    I also have a habit of ignoring them or my body wanting sleep/food/something else to do and just bookmarking the lot (right click on the tabs) so I decided to read them all earlier today. Turns out there was a few to read.

    Normally though about 70 once I get going and at least 20 (there are about 20 sites I use for the GBAtemp news). If I decided to use RSS that might go down but quite frankly it appeared when I was not paying attention and I have not seen the need.
