Limiting Browsers Windows and Tabs

Well, my laptop computer is 3 years old and it's getting close to the time to upgrade and get a new one. I keep getting really frustrated because it just keep freezing up. I know a big part of the reason is because I have way too many programs open at once. My computer gets quite overloaded just like my brain!!

My web browser is what freezes up the most too. I clear my cookies and temp internet files often. I guess what's really slowing it down and freezing it up is having too many browsers tabs open at once. I don't know what the optimal number of open tabs is but I'm learning that 11 at once is way too many!

I just found a cool little Firefox add-on called Window and Tab Limiter.  I just installed it and have it set to 5 Tabs! I'm hoping that will stop by browser from crashing and buy me a bit more time before I have to upgrade my computer.

  • That is an AWESOME idea Tara! I have to admit though…if I could only have 5 tabs open, I think I would get extremely frustrated! My desktop computer is 4 years old…and I added 4GB of RAM a year or so ago…that helped SO MUCH. Good luck…would love to know if you adapt to the limit of 5 or if it drives you crazy : ) Keep us posted!
