What sites/tabs do you always have open?
« on: July 08, 2013, 03:55:02 PM »
Inspired by a brief discussion in the jphip chatroom,

What are the sites that are always open on your browser?

How many tabs do you normally have open?


I have on average 10 tabs open:
- My two gmails
- this forum
- my LJ
- poupeegirl (I imagine I'll stop keeping this open once the site closes, though...)
- ER episode guide to remind me which episode I watched last (it's a long process)

The rest are tabs that are temporarily relevant, like a link to an anime I'm watching right now, links that remind me of jobs I should apply for or fan projects I've yet to finish, etc. I basically keep those open until I get the related things done which may vary from days to weeks to months (lol)

My tabs can get out of control, my vanilla start today had 24 tabs in Opera. That number grows, fluctuates and usually explodes by the end of the day.

On my main browser, Opera, I got the Jphip forum, mma-tracker, minus, tumblr and twitter always open. The rest come and go, but can linger for weeks or months depending on what I'm into or doing at the time...

I also use Chrome at the same time (because of convenience and a few extensions), with my mma betting site, some admin tools, sherdog radio and hattrick always open.

On my desktop I usually have 20-40 tabs open


I don't really have my pages that I always have open ( I guess the only one is Facebook), but I have a lot of tabs that are open for weeks/months until I have to close them due to performance issues.. :P


But this is what i usually have open:


 --  YouTube (with both music and cool/fun clips)
 -- Pictures/gifs
 -- Twitter/Tweetdeck
 -- Tutorials/Articles for stuff  I've read that I've read and I want to reread, or articles I've opened and intend or reading later
-- Things I don't want to lose (can be everything above)
 -- Episodes of anime/dramas

On my laptop which is a lot newer than my desktop computer I usually have 200+ tabs open before I decide to go through everything and figure out which tabs I can close. The reason why I get so many tabs is because I usually don't close stuff, so it just keeps piling up ^^;;

Edit: Oh, and to my fellow tab hoarders:

7-10 tabs open average:
- Jph!p forum
- 2 local toy/figure forums
- 1-2 foreign toy/figure review blogs
- blog!project
- Youtube
- 1-2 anime and/or toku subbers

+1 tab of our local intranet portal at work so I can switch to it whenever I feel like someone is approaching or going to ask me to do something :lol:

Only 4 tabs that are kept protected (locked):
- JPH!P forum
- Photobucket
- Outlook Webmail
- Pulse (browser version, showing AKB fan rss feeds)

Other stuff to keep tabs as low as possible:
Firefox "RSS Ticker add-on" - All those H!P and AKB blog feeds, rolling at the bottom of the screen
Firefox "My Weekly Browsing Schedule" add-on - Opening jap dramas/anime subber's pages (set on the day they normally post them). And regular daily reading (e.g. the weather page in the morning, CAD comics in the afternoon)
Rainmeter program - Showing an rss feed with gaming/jdrama news feeds. With Kotaku's rss as main

My tabs are relatively minimal, possibly due to memory crash paranoia from a different era.

-- GMail
-- Asian DVD Club tracker
-- Tweetdeck (if the old classic desktop version is wonky)
-- Yahoo Mail (yep, I use Y!M extensively)
-- Mixi, sometimes (anyone still use this?)

^ I just get updates from your mixi to my email, but I haven't logged in in years and so I only ever see the topic lines. :lol:
