i have the entire internet open in tabs when i start firefox...

actually i tend to just start with one tab, and if something on a site sparks my interest i'll open it in a new tab, and so on.

i usually have my fantasy football league site open, firefox forums (though that might change if i get banned), upstanding****ingcitizens.com (caution: very lowbrow and often idiotic) and a yahoo vocalist group (i'm a voice teacher).

I always open up
1. Gmail
2. Google Reader
3. Ubuntu Forums

Then I go through each one in order, opening interesting stories/emails/threads in order. By the time I'm done, I usually have about 20+ tabs open. Then I'll read through all the stories in random order.

you mean, uber-workaholic. Sometime during the course of today I noticed I had somewhere along the lines of 55ish tabs open.... thank you apple for insanely wide monitors.

it's just wrong when you have 7 tabs open that are replying to pms from five different forums where you're an admin....

this is where I roll my eyes at myself.

It depends.. I start with UF(these forums) then open up a bunch of the sub forums, then the posts... then I do other stuff... I used to go to hackaday.com and open up tons of tabs... the windows version is better for that! right now I have about four open... my firefox really gets messed up when I either have a lot of tabs and/or have a flash video playing!

EDIT: I just can't get into slashdot.... and I have 360 posts! I love this number! It's the degrees of a circle!!!
