I have four browsers open right now, Firefox, Chrome, Brave, and Opera - between them I have about 17 tabs open on this desktop, but I use DexPot and have a variety of other virtual desktops for projects and typically have browsers that have other tabs open specifically for those projects. At this moment, I am only using two desktops and my inactive one has a browser with four tabs open.


Most of the tabs can be closed, it is mostly pointless stuff like if Superman could survive a nuclear blast (he can, I completely forgot he did in Batman vs Superman) I also have a couple open for when I was searching for fantasy themed music streamed by shoutcast. Another three are for youtube, despite my desire to find another video streaming service. In Chrome, I was looking up keyboard shortcuts for a game. I also had a couple of tabs open for AutoHotKey, which is a really useful program. I was looking for a script to enable fullscreen in games that don't support it, or require a restart to have fullscreen. I found one that works pretty well actually. In Brave I have a few tabs up that list different regions I could explore in a game. Opera, I had opened for Replika because I wanted to have a quick chat to take a screenshot for this forum.


I don't like to have too many tabs open, because then it is hard to find what I am looking for. Having different browsers makes it easier to organize all of my tabs and find them, usually I assign certain browsers for certain tasks throughout the day. My wife on the other hand, she typically has so many tabs open they become tiny icons in her browser.

I have a large monitor so they are not that hard to see generally. Plus you can use the scroll wheel to find the one you want.

Yeah well I'm obviously doing something wrong because I just use the one browser ( I think it's Chrome - it has the coloured Google thing) and I just have 5 tabs open.

What are all you guys looking at to have so many things open at the same time?

Reminds me a bit of my son when he was a teenager. Whenever I wanted to talk to him I'd have to wait a second while he sent off some cryptic little messages in a black box up in the corner of his screen. (think it was DOS)

I basically always win this one lol. (And any competition based around being chaotic.)

My brother has a sort of breakdown about it everytime he sees my monitors.

interesting. I use different Chrome profiles for different purposes: one for irl profiles, one for social media, one for looking up stuff, etc. I had to delete a few to save some disk space, i think i had 7 profiles at one point.

never heard of dexpot before, I always wonder why windows doesnt make linux style workspaces. they're really useful.

Dexpot is really awesome, although it hasn't been updated since 2016. With that said, it is very stable on my computer. The thing I like about it, over the native virtual desktop is that it has a ton of customization to it. I have a different resolution set to some of my virtual desktops, because sometimes I just prefer lower resolution for casual reading - but also because I am a bit of a nostalgia nut at times and like to browse the web at 800x600 - specifically older sites or stuff from Internet Archive. I could just use the browser's zoom feature but there is something about the 4:3 screen size that brings me a bit of joy.. I can be a complete sucker for things like that. Plus I can set different backgrounds for the desktops, decide if I want a taskbar, and so on.

I think Microsoft really missed the mark when it comes to the virtual desktops. It has been a while since I used linux for my main OS, but I did enjoy the virtual desktops I used in Xfce. I think I could set the resolution for each of them as well.

I just went through the chore of updating all of my passwords, what a complete PITA that was. I didn't realize just how many accounts I have spread around the Internet until I received a notification that one of them was compromised. It seems like every site wants you to register to them now :lol I have gotten to the point that I just let the browser setup the strong password, and hope my chrome account never gets compromised. I have been looking into other password managers though, there was one I could store on my own network that looked promising.

That's kind of cool. I don't usually bother customizing things. The only thing I do really is make the taskbar vertical (I've probably been doing that since windows 98 or something).

Oh, I just use "hunter2" for all my passwords. That's safer I think :3

seriously though, I have the same problem with passwords. I also have really bad memory, so whenever I do change some password I tend to completely forget the new one unless I'm actively using it.

ya. that does sound extreme. .__.

'New Folder (2) - Copy - Copy" ? :|

well maybe not too extreme. I basically only start closing tabs when I get too many Chrome windows they start cluttering my taskbar. I probably wouldn't if I used multiple screens. Multiple taskbars to clutter I guess.

I don't get the folder thing, but actually my folders are more organised lol so less chaotic in that case. Although I sometimes start file names off with 0 - 0 and so on to try and get them to show up at the top of a long list. When I was younger I used to have really dumb file names though some of them were like I was having a conversation with myself (cba finding an example right now some are really cringy lol.)

Most of the time I end up losing most of the tabs only when the browser I'm using crashes and it doesn't recover some of them, as often happens with Chrome lol. I have two monitors so creates more room.
