The internet is loading so slowly!
How many internet tabs/pages do you currently have pulled up? What are they?

I have six. They are (in order)- 3 for gun websites (not mine haha), Facebook, an article about arsenic in chicken, and PC.

I have 3 up, all mine.
1. Pokecommunity
2. The Zippyshare download link to BARRELS! The Game(a PewDiePie based mod of Slender: The Eight Pages)

I have a nice system. I have two groups of tabs: one that lasts between sessions and another that has whatever stuff I'm doing right now that gets closed when I'm done with it.
Cave Story on GameFAQs
Darths & Droids, a webcomic that mixes D&D with Star Wars
Two torrents for... let's say "personal fulfillment" that I'm planning to download later
A blank tab because everything before it is left open for when I want it between sessions and I don't want it to load those pages unless I actually want to use them
Two pages on PC that will be closed when I'm done with them.

Hikamaru February 17th, 2013 8:08 PM

Most of the time I have the following tabs up:

- PokeCommunity
- Pokemon Showdown (I need to see what's going on the server of course)
- DeviantArt
- Tumblr
- YouTube
- TV Tropes (I love reading all those facts!)
- Some other random forum

Castform February 17th, 2013 8:18 PM

I usually have 3 open PC, the battle server, and a random one that I am visiting at the time.

Caelus February 17th, 2013 8:57 PM

Right now my tabs are:

-This page
-Bleacher Report

I usually have 3-4 tabs at a time, but sometimes I could get up to 12 tabs if there's a lot of threads/articles that I want to read.

Archenoth February 17th, 2013 8:58 PM

I am a meta-browser... I very seldom have fewer than 50 tabs open.

I usually tab stack related things....

This is what my browser looks like:

This is what one of my tab stacks looks like:

Bounce February 17th, 2013 9:08 PM

donavannj February 17th, 2013 9:24 PM

- SNL Spoof of the confirmation hearings for Chuck Hagel
- A Jet Set Radio Future Medley Mix
- A Medley by someone for works animated by Key
- two nameless Avenue Q songs
6 PC tabs
1 Smogon tab
1 Fox Sports tab

Brendino February 17th, 2013 10:57 PM

Unless I'm looking at a bunch of picture files at different links, I never seem to have any more than 5 tabs open. Right now I've got 4 open- 1 for Twitter, and 3 for PC (main page, Tech & Internet forum, this thread). The only other tab I might have open for long periods of time is my e-mail, but I just checked it 10 minutes ago, so I didn't need it right now.

Satoshi Ookami February 18th, 2013 7:24 AM

Now it's 17 and since I'm only on PC I have a tab for each thread I'm browsing through here on PC.
When I'm on my laptop, I usually have about 20 tabs as I'm lazy to close things I know I'll be needing next day.

Cordelia February 18th, 2013 9:23 AM

I'm at work, but this is what I have up in Chrome.

- PC
- Mibbit
- Twitter

If I want to open anything else, I just add more tabs. I might check facebook, xda, and various other sites as well throughout the day. It matters how bored I get. :P

.EJ February 18th, 2013 11:59 AM

Uhh three right now which is my average...I think.


Usually my internet isn't loading slowly because I use a ethernet cord.

Team Fail February 18th, 2013 12:30 PM

I have a DCC page pulled up, an imgur photo album, a page on a flash music player, another forum I'm active on, and this page.

I'm wired to my modem, so all that slows me down is the speed of my computer, and it isn't that great.

Sableye~ February 23rd, 2013 5:46 PM

Mine right now are-
This thread
Youtube [Lowered because it's only being used for music]

Evil Stud Muffin February 23rd, 2013 5:51 PM

1 facebook
10 or so lurking on NeoGaf
2 on PC.

Arx February 23rd, 2013 6:03 PM

I only have a PC tab for now. My internet isn't too slow either.

Zach February 23rd, 2013 9:21 PM

I have Facebook, PC, Youtube, and some other forums I visit opened up quite frequently. I use wifi and my connection isn't bad at all (though sometimes it can be bogged down due to distance between my computer and my router)

Alice February 23rd, 2013 9:38 PM

Ah, I don't have very many right now... too bad.

21 in total:
1 google translate
1 nico nico douga
1 skyrim gems
2 nexusmods
2 bethsoft forums
1 myanimelist
2 pokecommunity
12 youtube

I've been known to have well over 50 open back in the day... I've been trying to keep things a little more tidy lately though. haha

Liliana Vess February 24th, 2013 8:00 AM

I'm a self confessed tab hoarder, I dislike going from one page to another. I always have to open the page up in a new tab and if I don't think I'll be going back to that page then I'll close it, but more often than not I'll forget about it.

Right now I only have 12 up
Facebook, 3 PC tabs, one Reddit, one RedditGitfs, a page about learning caligraphy, an Imgur page, two pages from my university VLE, a page about Lesson aims and objectives and then a rose model about Blooms Taxonomy.
It's the perfect balance between doing work and procrastinating <3

Pinkie-Dawn February 24th, 2013 9:11 AM

2-3 tabs on FireFox + 1 tab from Safari + 1 tab from Camino = 5 tabs in total

Tabs I go to mostly are Safari's homepage, Google, and Dogpile to visit other websites including PokeCommunity.

Kotowari March 1st, 2013 3:02 AM

Depends on what I'm doing, but generally 5 seems to be the average. If I'm picture hoarding (Minitokyo and tumblr come to mind) that amount might increase more than a 10 fold.

Right now I have my "starter tab" called that way because it's the first tab in the line and it's fun to look at. So I don't close it. xD
Then there's two of tumblr pages of which I'm still considering whether or not to save the images. Then there's my university mail box.
And two PC tabs.

Usually there's also my deviantArt Messages and tumblr account... but not now.

curiousnathan March 1st, 2013 4:02 AM

Currently I have only one tab up, that being The Pokecommunity!

Jokedon March 1st, 2013 7:57 AM

I dont like to have too many tabs open, slows down the browser a lot. So usually not more than three...
