    Usually about 5 tabs, but 1 tab right now ^^
  5. Have always disabled tab browsing no matter what browser I use.
  6. 7, 8 now because techspot opened 1 more tab for the reply.

    Like I do most of the time, just one now. Occasionally, up to six or seven.

    I try not to have more than 10, otherwise it's a mess for me. Right now I have 8.

    Iv got 4 open, I only open a new window on accident lol. Can't stand my dads IE setup of opening a new window when clicking on links. When I wake up I go to yahoo\techspot while I eat breakfast and open 10+ news articles, then make my way through them and the comments over the next few hours or leave them up for when I have time later. I do the same thing with eztv and tbh, though I rarely download anything from TBH but I do like to browse and see user reviews on movies. I kinda use eztv as a tv guide and I download some weekly shows I follow, I hate showing up for shows as they air, I love watching them on my own time. Every day I check eztv to see anything I missed\forgot about the day before. Currently I have 3 tehcake windows up, some videos load slowly so I simultaneously keep 2 up to download while I watch the third. When I am doing my online classes I run about 7 tabs.

    Tabs? I'm old fashioned, so I still use separate windows.

    13 at the moment, I try not to let it get TOO far out of hand...

    And then I read some people have 75, 100, 125+ tabs and I can only shake my head and say "wow."

    Maximum of 6-7. I like to open links in new tabs but rapidly close it for irrelevance.

    4 (left screen window) + 7 (right screen window) = 11 tabs currently. Not too unusual to see 20 tabs open but I usually only have around 5.

    3 right now, but I've just been gaming. During the course of the day I usually amass 50+ tabs across various open windows in Chrome. I wouldn't be surprised if I hit 100 sometimes.

    1, usually 2-3
  23. 14 tabs open here on my end. Most are pinned tabs that I keep up. Just faster and easier I guess.

    A mere 1 (sometimes as many as 3, after that I would get confused!)
