Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

RE[2]: Still using Firefox

Member since:

"at least a dozen windows open and upwards of a hundred tabs (on busy days, when juggling a lot of different things, it can hit 40 windows/300+ tabs)

Better to get rid of such browsing habits... (and I speak from experience; for me, the too-many-tabs habits were enabled by Opera)

I find that to be the most efficient way to work using a browser, at least for me. I find it faster to leave windows/tabs open that I'm likely to need again in the near future - and I tend to open most things in new tabs, because I prefer being able to just switch tabs rather than waiting for websites/web-based applications. Then once a week or so, I go through and close any tabs/windows I don't need anymore.

And Firefox handles that surprisingly well, at least with TabHunter and SessionManager installed. It also helps that, when restoring a session in recent versions, Firefox only loads pages in the active tabs.
