Take a look at the top of your screen. How many tabs do you currently have open?

It is more than likely that you have tabs taking up the whole width of your screen, which is completely normal.

Carnegie Mellon University have carried out a study to analyse the ways in which we use internet browser tabs, identifying some of the problems that could occur.

This study discovered that almost a third of participants had a huge problem with keeping tabs open and were ultimately ‘browser tab hoarding’

A considerable amount of people said they struggled to find any pages they wanted to revisit due to the mass number of tabs, which was also the cause of their computer crashing.
