    As a heavy tab user (See above.) I can say it won't slow down as much as you think... Tabs only noticeably slow down the browser if you exceed the amount of RAM on your computer and it starts swapping in and out of the page file/swap file. If you don't do that, you are pretty much in the clear.

    This is what Conky tells me when Opera has 65 tabs open:

    In addition to the tabs, I also have the built-in IRC, E-Mail, and Feed clients running as well as a very AJAX-heavy VLC web interface. Two of those tabs are Google Plus which polls often, and another two are which are very JavaScript heavy when you have a lot of images in an album you are viewing.

    Opera's RAM usage is at 1.5GB because of the tabs and is still using less than 5% CPU. That 5% is only because of the additional things I have running in it non-stop, and not necessarily because of idle tabs.

    tl;dr - Feel free to do as you like, if you want tabs, use em. It won't have as adverse an effect you think it will.

      1) This thread.
      2) PC's OVP
      3) An anime website cos I am watching Kokoro Connect half-way.

      I normally have 1~5 up, anything more then that makes my computer lag.

      All three of them are PokeCommunity.. Haha.

      I go through rounds with my websites. First I pull up facebook. Nothing interesting? Close it.

      Then reddit. Open 2320482094823 tabs, then get bored of imgur and my favorite subreddits. Close it.

      Let's check chameleonforums! *open tons of new threads* I answer all of them, then close it.

      Well I'm bored of all the others. PC time! Answer all the OVP threads!
      let's meet again
      in the next life

      I generally like keeping my number of tabs open to a minimum. Currently I have Twitter, Serebii, and PokéCommunity open; each a pinned tab. On a regular day I'd usually have PC, Tumblr, Twitter, Youtube, and Google open, but if I'm not using them I'll probably close them off.

        Five at the moment. The most I can keep at a time before I start closing stuff is usually around ten.

        To be honest, I mistook the thread title as a topic about internet speeds. :(

        But alright, I have two open right now. PC and Twitter, my two main sites. xD

            I tend to hoard tabs, it's not uncommon for me to have 10 or sometimes even 20 tabs open at once. My record is 32. ):

            Currently I only have three open:
            -The Pirate Bay
            -This page

            *Opens more tabs*

            Well, our company is on a satellite connection. This means our server is connected to a big "TV" satellite transceiver on the roof of the building.

            The satellite fires a signel 35,000 KM to a satellite in orbit and back to earth again.

            This type of connection experiences VERY HIGH latency (the time it takes to send data to the remote computer and the remote computer to respond). So PC loads quite slowly most days.

            FYI my downloading speed is 3.22MB/s and Upping at 833 KB/s -Nice.

              I've split my browser into two windows as I always do:

              left window:
              1. PC main page
              2. this thread

              right window:
              1. Youtube subscriptions
              2. New Super Mario Bros U #11 video by trg on youtube

                four tabs. one for this page, two for school, and one that might break the forum rules if I posted it here.

                I only have 3 tabs open at the moment: PC, Bulbagarden Forums, and Facebook. I never have lots of tabs open at once. Usually about 3-6 at once cause I don't want to overload my browser.
