Tabs, the greatest thing since sliced bread and Jetpacks in my opinion. Well, and maybe Flamethrowers. Or maybe even the pillsbury dough boy wearing a jetpack and wielding a Flamethrower. But nevertheless it's an amazingly useful feature that I take advantage of the entire time I'm online. I loathe the days of when you wanted multiple web pages open you had to actually open new windows for each one.

Oh when I saw this thread I thought about Music Tabs lol. But yeah I use tabs all the time. It's easier that way.

I could not live without them.

I need to keep my social interwebz life updated every minute.

Because, that's the limit between posts here! >.<

I love tabs. Remember the days of multiple windows? Now it's rare if I ever have another browser window open. But I also like to keep my tabs under control by not having unnecessary ones open. My partner in crime is so bad for this, he has like a million tabs open and doesn't close unnecessary ones. I'm such a Monica Gellar when it comes to these kind of things.

Gawd yes, absolutely. Whenever I'm browsing forums I always open the threads I wanna read in other tabs and then just close them when I'm done. I luv them.

Yeah, tvtropes does this to me on a regular basis. I usually end up with at least 30 tabs scrunched together on that poor bar.

I abuse my tabs, especially on forums.

I'll open like, seven different ones, then once I've read that thread I'll put it back to the index and forget about it. Then I've got a shipload of tabs I need to spend valuble time closing.

You mean version of Internet Explorer. I believe it's IE7 that first introduced tabbing.

Oh, yeah, tabbing is my main mode of browsing. It happens only rarely that I donít open a link in a new tab. Off course, highly interlinked sites like Wikipedia and TVTropes can become a problem over time because I open just way too manyÖ :D

Tabs rule. My tabs have to be organised by category on separate windows.

I guess I do.

He chose.... poorly

I usually just have a few tabs open because if I have too many then things become as cluttered and confusing as having like 5+ windows open =/

Better than opening multiple windows /nostalgia

Yes i use tabs especially when i'm searching 2 things at once i use them. Tabs are sometimes needed for useful things though and my family uses them as well.

Depends on the circumstance. Generally speaking, I usually have TRF, Facebook and Boobs in their own separate tabs. But sometimes I find it more useful to have a separate window for each site, especially if I'm comparing or editing something and need a quick reference.

robm_2007

i hate the tabs. i like having multiple windows open instead.

I was going to say tabs are the greatest thing since sliced bread, but the OP already said that. :D And I couldn't slice bread on my own to save my life, I cut my fingers instead.

For Firefox users

Foxtab (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8879/) Very awesome 3D switcher.

Tab Focus (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7955/) Tab switching by mouseover.

FishEyeTabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4845/) Fun and easy way for scrolling through multiple tabs.

Super sweet when you combine them! :jmp:

I constantly use them. I always open new links into a tab by clicking them with the wheel so I have a list of where to visit.

Maybe a better question would be, does anyone NOT use tabs? My parents don't, because they still seem to think it's a physical impossibility to have more than one internet browser open at a time.

Very rarely actually.. IE8 seems to hate when I open tabs!

The tab opens fine and everything, but websites won't load on said tabs....

AmericanAssassin
12-05-10, 18:54
Yes, I always use them and I have to organize them a certain way...

TRFs, Facebook,YouTube, PhotoBucket, and Miscellaneous (in order of importance). :p

You should really stop usinf IE.
Switch to Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, is my advice. ;)

pfft. I have 5 running separate on occasion when I feel funny. Sometimes I'm brave enough to add IE to the list.

Sometimes slow migration is the key to doing things. First add browser link, then start adding your favs and convert along till you feel safe.

But, when I do go to an internet cafe (to print stuff or something), I do tab. :p It's no big deal, really.

But I always use them; taking advantage of this awesome feature :mis:

Windows didn't as such, but they started using them in Internet Explorer 7 (once they realised that Firefox and Opera were much better with having them :p). You could say that in a way, Windows 7 has tabs in the way it groups programs together.

touchthesky

Yeah, lol. Internets wouldn't be the same without them.

Dunno how I lived before tabs.
