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 can't think of a good signature.

    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.
    Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

    "The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

    "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

      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.

        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:

          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.

          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.

            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.

            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.

            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)

            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

              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.
              And Mercy too.

              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.
