Good quest Mike as I many times have 10-12 tabs open in Google chrome and there are days it gets frozen and have to restart.
for multiple tabs,. chrome is the faster and stable than any other browser.

safari couldnt even handle 5 tabs and after 3 days, stopped using it.

It should be noted that Chrome treats each tab as its own process. Chrome has a multithreaded GUI, which means that each tab is close to fully independent from other tabs.

If you have a quad core machine with hyperthreading, you have 8 cores in Windows. If you launch 8 tabs all at once (say clicking all your favorite sites off your bookmark bar, to open in new tabs) then Chrome will launch each tab in its own process, using a separate core. So it loads pretty fast.

Firefox on the other hand is single threaded GUI. So even though each tab spawns a new thread, they cannot render in parallel because the GUI is single threaded. So launching 8 concurrent tabs in Firefox would be dramatically slower than in Chrome.

Still, I like Firefox a lot and use it regularly. Chrome is also fantastic.

As for IE, it is pure crap, lowest of the low, the worst thing ever for any web developer. I would ban IE from the site if I could, but too many people use it because they don't know any better.

I guess Mike really loves IE...and has for some time now

I switched to firefox about a month ago and am pleased with it. The reason I held out so long was because of the way the zoom worked and the way the font/lettering came out on firefox.
I spent enough time on it after my IE got to the point it was locking up and getting slower and so forth almost daily(even after flushing everything out it would only take a day or so to get crappy again).

To make a long story short I would recommend switching to you guys experiencing what I did...there are plenty of add ons that will make it compatible and actually better....especially the ad blockers and so forth.

Sorry to get off topic here...I have 3 tabs up all the time.

I use Chrome with only 2 standard tabs... one for standard work, and one for using a online translator

Otherside i extensive use the "open in a new tab function" function, when i make any search requests.
On the standard work tab i have the list of search results and then i select the most interest links for open as new tab without direct go to this tab... when i have 4..8 result tabs, then i go to the (loaded) tabs and can go deeper on this site or close this site. The basic search site is continue open, for select more or other results.

For pure working sites (news other developement helps) i dont use tabs, for this i use on separate windows on different monitors or screen areas.

I use srware iron which is basically a private variant of chrome.

Go ahead and see for yourselves why srware iron is better than chrome.

Comparism of Iron and Chrome at privacy

Firefox

Using Firefox since the first version I find it very stable and quick.
I use in some windows up to 6 tabs - if using more they get to short in the
titles and some are hidden..
But for normal use I like more to have different windows than tabs for these reasons:
a) tabs are using some important space in a window - I like more to see page content than static buttons
b) long website titles are not to see as whole - if there are websites with long titles it is hard to distinguish
c) to choose websites (without tabs) from the menu it is far easier to find the desired one
To make it short I use >20 windows, most of them without tabs.
