Do you open links and new webpages in tabs, or do you open up an entire new window? Why?

I prefer tabs, for some reason, it makes my computer go faster, also, my task bar looks neater.

I use tabs, don't like my whole task bar being filled.

Tabs <3. My parents always open up new windows and then everything feels clustered, makes me so annoyed >:3.

Tabs of course. As soon as I realized that they looked cool existed, I was all over them.

I prefer Tabs, because they are easier to find, and you can move them around to where you like.

Tabs were invented because having to open more windows is plain stupid, especially if you're running other programs, too.

Really, who uses windows anymore? Tabs are the new thing.

I much prefer tabs, I have limited screen space as it is and because I usually work with multiple programs at a time, having multiple windows for the browser is just annoying.

Tabs. they make life easier

Kind of off topic: Google chrome has the best looking tabs all time, it looks like a filing cabinet whenever I'm on.

Heh. Well if I'm using Lynx I can't do either.
Anyway, my primary browser is Opera. My taskbar goes down the side of my screen so while I do have ample space for new windows I go for tabs. I'm switching between fullscreen windows of different programs all the time so it's not abnormal or difficult for me to use new windows; my choice is decided by whatever is higher on the right click menu, and on Opera 'openen in nieuwe tab' is above 'openen in niew venster'.

Tabs. My main attraction of Firefox.
Yet all other modern browsers also use tabs.

...Geez... now that I think about it, I haven't opened more than one window in a while o.o
Unless of course I have a game and a browser etc...

Tabs are more important than life. I almost never have more than one window open, unless they are completely separate programs.

Tabs, probably uses less RAM, don't really care either way.

99.8% of the time tabs.

new window for some things that may crash or lockup.. or for reading/copy/pasta reasons.

Tabs cause it's easier to access the pages i have open and it doesn't clutter up my start bar.

It was in 2007 I still had an old version of IE and did not know IE7 had them. So I naturally went along with firefox like a noob.

Tabs. I hate having more than 5 windows open at a time. MSGPlus ftw.

Why would anyone in their right mind open up a new window for each page? I could understand if you did it every so often due to your tab panel getting loaded, but otherwise, it's irrational. xD

I use tabs btw. :P

Tabs, easiest way to navigate without having to clog up everything and keeps it all in one window.

Oh god no. I use tabs. Although I do often stick with individual windows for MSN, just to make sure I don't send a message to the wrong person.

Tabs.
I can't stand having my task bar full of Internet windows.
It gets full enough from MSN and other programs as it is.

Tabs makes it a lot cleaner and easier to manage.

Tabs, so much more easier, I'm always doing multiple things, so instead of 50 millon windows stealing my start bar (panels for my Linux). Besides, Tabs look 1 million times better then 50 million windows open.

I save tabs, I always have open like 10 tabs and I sometimes open another window just so I could open even more tabs if I feel I have too many!! xD

Tabs = FTW.

I use tabs even though it can get a bit confusion at times. I don't like looking at the bottom of my screen and seeing that its filled up with windows of internet browsers
