    On average, I have 4-6 windows open at once unless I'm doing several things at once, in that case, no more than 15.

    Usually only 1-3, I have been using the tabs in Mozilla, so while I have 10 sites/pages open it's still all in one window. Aside from that, I usually have ATerm running, occasionally Mozilla Mail, and Gaim.

    I usually have ~ 20 windows open, but they get doubled if I login to my MSN account.

    I got this habbit since I got a DSL connection. So I don't want to waste any single bps of the connection
