#48 – Tabbed

I never realize I have this problem until I open that final tab that squishes them all one final time where I loose the icons. Then I start clicking through them. “Nope, need that one… need it, need that, ooh! (watches cat video) keep that one…” An hour later I finally find a tab I can close. 5 minutes after that I open a new tab and start all over.

    I have solved this problem….4 browser windows each with their own tab layouts…

    Well, really only two are needed, but the others are for when I want to open more and not mess up my tabbing scheme on the primary windows.

    Either that, or those people who just have to add every fly-by-night toolbar add-on that offers itself.

      I must admit that I am a Tabmiser.

      I have maximized my view by placing all the buttons and address/search bars in the menu bar. However, I knew one family that had so many add-on toolbars that they only had less than 1/3 of the window for actual browsing. (So much spyware! >.> )

    My solution to this is the Firefox add-on “tree style tabs”. It moves the tab bar to the side of the windo and stacks the tabs, so I have space for more tabs at a time. Of course, me being me, I have far to many tabs up //anyway//…

    I wonder what our battlestations will look like ten years from now…

    Every time this happens, a few minutes later I run out of memory. So I ‘bookmark all tabs’ and close the browser.
    Now I have a folder of folders of tabs I didn’t finish reading yet.

    Strange that I didn’t write this before…

    I use to have two or three virtual machines running, each with about 4 virtual desktops, on each desktop half a dozen or more browser windows, and in each browser window up to 20 tabs. And yet, there is a certain order in that, so that in 90% (or maybe 80% or maybe 70% …) of the cases I want to revisit a webpage, I remember where it is. Once I made a rough estimate, and found I had nearly 1000 web pages open the same time. (And thanks to swapping, running out of memory isn’t a problem anymore, only the time to drink (and make) two, three cups of coffee until the disks are done with thrashing.)

    Conclusion: Hibernating doesn’t have only advantages. it has its drawbacks too.
