Is there a way to auto open a bunch of sites at once?

    I go onto like 5-6 other sites and I usually check them daily. I was wondering if there was a way to just open all of the sites in one click.

    I'm using FireFox btw.

    Oh with firefox that's easy. Make a new folder in your bookmarks, put them all there.
    Then when you want to check them all hit bookmarks, and middle-click the folder, or right click it and hit "open all in tabs".

    You can do the same with the bookmarks toolbar folder. Then all you'll have to do is right click the toolbar and hit "open all in tabs"

    You can also set your home ?page" to multiple tabs. Open the tabs you want, then in firefox's settings click the button to make whatever's current the home page, and it'll make all the tabs as home.

    Heh, I'm glad that other people gave you useful advice before I saw this thread. I would have suggested installing the TabMix Plus extension and using its "session saver" feature to do what you want, simply because I've been using TMP for years. Quite unnecessary when good alternatives exist.

    This, I was searching for a similar thing like the OP a year ago, and I found it in one of the million add-ons of Firefox. It's called Session Manager, but I guess TabMix Plus is the same thing. Firefox FTW for these kind of things.

    Right click the tabs you want to keep open and select 'Pin Tab'.

    I use the first method, with the bookmarks toolbar. No need for session saving because FF does it automatically.

    Or you can go to chrome settings, and for the 'On startup' option, choose 'Open the following pages:' and enter the pages you want to load.
