    I'm not looking at all of them at once. It has to do with my browsing habits-- I usually open up every link on a forum at one time, then close the tabs as I get through them. That's one example. (I also have a bad habit of leaving tabs open, often for weeks a time, when I'm too busy to get to something but want to look at it or reply later.)
    Well, at some point I should probably try Chrome.

    I've got 16 tabs in Opera right now, and that's fine.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what it is. I have 18 open in FF, and it's fast.
    But sometimes (I don't know why) it can slow things down, especially any sort of structural items, like opening a select in a form, or opening a new window.

    From what I have heard ie10 has improved a lot with 9 and going into 10 as they become more standards compliant.

    I only have IE10 dev plugged into IETester but I don't really see a great deal of difference between it and 9. I wonder how it will fare once its out in the real world - guess we'll find out later this year. Or maybe the middle of next year will be a better indicator once its been filtered out in the mainstream auto-updates? Can't beat everyday users for 'inventive' bug-discovery.

    Well, they really broke the mold to a great extent before making IE 9, resulting in a very much improved browser. I anticipate 10 to be more of the same. Too bad they can't update 8 with some of the common sense standards of 9. I mean, for XP users, they can't use 9, so they really need to use Chrome, Opera, or the Fox, etc. Perhaps an IE 9 for XP . . . But I doubt that will happen.

    And it's really not all that important to me. I think it would be a smart move on MS's part. But the longer they wait, the less value it will have to them or to anyone.

    Now FF is going as fast as I could expect. It still seems to have slight delays for processing reasons (eg, opening a new window), but the pages load must faster-- basically it makes the requests simultaneous instead of in a sequence.

    Interestingly, I think this basically fixes FF for those who don't like it because it's slow. I'd guess Chrome (and other "fast" browsers) use similar methods.
