    How many Tabs on average open in your browser?

    As the title says, How many tabs do you have in one browser window at one time?

    I usually have around 10-12, any more and the tab titles become questionable. Usually have 2-5 windows open, with each window corresponding to a different task and tabs helping with that task.

    I use Firefox. I have Chrome, but its been a task in and of itself to get used to it out of the box.

    I only have 8 open right now, but I just restarted my computer. Before that I had one that had around 25 tabs open... and I had about 5-6 windows open. This is typical for me.

    Same as hungry4knowhow, always 2-5 firefox instances running 10-15 tabs each... gotta love it when you usually suspend your computer and leave tabs with flash animations

    About 7-8 most of the time. Any more than 7-8 and it truncates the title of my first tab which is being used for webmail, and I wouldn't be "notified" (by looking at the title) if there was any new email.

    A friend used to tease me about having so many open. Usually between 4-10 in my browser plus YIM, MS Word, Media player, and sometimes some design app's.
    I call it maximizing your puters capabilities. I do remember a time when running all these things would have either slowed you puter down or make it crash.

    Is this before or after we count how many of the tabs are of "adult nature"? Cause if not, 10-20 if so 8-15.

    Right now I have 5 open, and usually its the same. I don't open up many tabs as the browser tends to hang.

    I never keep more than 10 tabs otherwise it looks like a complete mess. If I want 10+ pages open at the same time then I open multiple firefox windows with no more than 10 tabs in each window :p
