How many windows do you have open?
On your computer not your dwelling. I have 10 open which is
normal for me.

3. I can't get used to that tab thing.
I guess i should try it. It would probably expand my brain,
or at least make it more accessible.

11. Are you using Firefox?
create a new tab: ctrl t
close tab: ctrl w
navigate open tabs: ctrl pgup/dn
to open a link in a new tab, right click + t

16. You can also launch with multiple tabs
Get your tabs set up the way you want them to look like at start-up and go into options and select 'use current pages.' Then they will be there next time you start Firefox. I start with eight tabs myself.

You can also open an entire bookmark folder of tabs by right clicking and selecting 'open all in tabs.'

9. Hi miss Peggy.
I read you were having problems with your heart. Just between you and me
and a few thousand other du'ers....you have the best heart on du.
I mean that. You are always the glass not half full, but overflowing.
I enjoy your posts. You are an inspiration to us all.

6. The bare minimum required at work. 12.
5x tty terminals, 1 account launchpad, 1 reference tool, one works email, one tty "tool", MS Word, a calculator and of course DU. If a call comes in, I'll have 13, and if the logging tool was in use (which it isn't since it's out of action right now) I'd have 14.

I am at work though.

8. 13 Windows, 17 Firefox tabs
Sometimes the # of FF tabs swells to sixty or more especially going through the feeds in the morning. I open anything that looks interesting into a new tab. I've had over 200 FF tabs open at one tab with no problems.
