I've reduced the number of tabs in my browser to only 13 from 62.

Multiple Tabs in an open browser can be convenient but, it can also slow down the page loading process a bit.

If you usually keep up to 9 or more tabs open in your current internet browser on your desktop computer, you will find that sometimes, not always, but sometimes, you will reboot your system one morning and open up your browser, only to find that all of your tabs, in fact, have disappeared.

I keep a record of all my favorite tabs for quick and easy access while surfing the net.

It is funny that sometimes the browser can eliminate all of them without telling you ahead of time that this is going to happen.

I don't really need all these open tabs. My browser, SeaMonkey 2.39 I also have a bookmark bar just below my search bar. Below the search bar, the bookmarks bar keeps hyperlinks to favorite sites listed, but they remain closed until I want them, but below the bookmarks bar is my list of open tabs, which in fact remain open during my online session, which could be all day and all night long.

I have currently 14 tabs open, I just added the tab that gives me the latest status of my browser and it's current version number which is at this moment, on 12/18/2015, at 8:37 AM central time, version 2.39

The details are below this sentence:

'You are currently on the release update channel. See a list of contributors to the Mozilla Project. Read the licensing information for this product. Read the release notes for this version. See the build configuration used for this version. User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 SeaMonkey/2.39 Build identifier: 20151103191810'

I would like to keep up to 26 open tabs as there are several sites I regularly go to, but alas, I will have to use the bookmarks toolbar, just above the tabs toolbar, so I can probably work on this later.

Do you use open tabs? And if you do, how many do you think is the optimum number? And do you keep tabs open to save page load time or for ease of access? Which are your favorite open tabs? Do you keep Wikipedia open at all times?

Here are a list of all the tabs I have used at one time or another for quick and easy access:

Hmm! I didn't realize I had all those tabs open in my browser. No wonder it removed them all.

Talk about tab overload!

You should add a link to your blog on your next few articles, down at the bottom of it. That way others can visit it and enjoy reading your posts.

I was teasing you. emoticon :smile:

I have linked several times. The latest time I did that was several weeks ago on my Thanksgiving article.

Wow! I usually have multiple tabs open at one time, but when I come to this page I drop it down to one tab at a time, because the ads tend to lock up my Firefox. I'll definitely look into SeaMonkey

Wow, even my son in law doesn't have that many open! I generally have 2 or 3 at most. I close down those I am not using, especially financial ones.

Actually, that's a good idea! Must try that. I use Chrome. There is "Speed Dial2" for Chrome that saves all your favourite sites as small thumbnails or you can add them manually if you want. When I want to open a new tab, all those thumbnails appear and i can just choose the one I want.
