    Do you have many browser tabs open?

    I came across this @ mozilla.dev.apps.firefox related to 64-bit Firefox development:
    After I announced my decision to disable 64-bit Windows nightlies, there
    was significant negative feedback. After reviewing that feedback, and
    consulting with Release Engineering, I believe that we can keep a set of
    users happy by making a modification to the original plan.

    Most importantly, it seems that there are users who regularly run into
    the 4GB memory limits of 32-bit builds. These users often have hundreds
    or even thousands of tabs
    . These users are using the 64-bit nightlies
    not primarily to be part of our testing community, but because those
    builds are the best product available.
    I've rarely opened more than twenty tabs and am wondering what sort of usage would require that "users often have hundreds or even thousands of tabs".

    My bare minimum "working set" consists of 12 tabs, and in the heat of researching something or trying to diagnose / fix a particularly vexing problem, I've hit 100 open tabs a handful of times before: I leave open those tabs that have any tidbits of information that could possibly lead to progress, and don't close them for fear of having to find them again, until I know for certain I have everything I need.

    I often end up with ~ 20 tabs after searching something. But then I look at them and realize I don't need 17 of them

    What could possibly make you open 95? Don't you fear crashing as mozilla is not multi-process (the only reason I am using chromium)?

    Normally have around 15 open... Clean it every now and then to around 7 tabs. I don't know how having 100 tabs open is useful. Correct me if I'm wrong...
