Why do we need tabs? I guess why not, but you can only look at 1 screen at a time anyway, so why have them?

Right now I'm watching a Youtube video while switching between Facebook, Tumblr, and gamespot. It would be a hassle to have to load a new page every time I wanted to check on those really quick. That's the need.

Exactly that.  Much easier and quicker to just click between tabs, if you don't want to keep opening/closing web pages.

Why would you listen to music while writing something in Word with explorer running in the background when you can disable explorer and every other process like skype/yahoo/Steam/sound drivers/dropbox and the likes/mouse apps, you're only looking at your Word document, right? There's your answer Mr. Troll.

The topic is titled Tabs in the BROWSER. You can open your web browser and work on a word document. But there is only 1 page open for the music.

Why would you open an internet browser when working in Word? you can only see Word.

It's a test for adhd

i have 30 tabs open

I guess I failed

#19 Posted by fnevaeva (564 posts) -
Because your web browser is a seperate application apart from Word used for other needs. Do you listen to multiple songs at the same time?

I listen to multiple sounds at a time.
#21 Posted by fnevaeva (564 posts) -
Sounds are seperate from a compilation of sounds which make a song. Your trying to twist my point. But it stands.
#22 Posted by nutcrackr (12850 posts) -
To keep the task bar clutter free mainly, so the browser can manage memory better too. I use tabs and new windows, I'm crazy like that.

You are missing the key to your understanding, it's been mentioned before, multitasking. You have 4 tabs for example, music streams in one, 2 forums and email, you listen to music in the background for one and despite you seeing only one tab, you are interested in multiple forums or forums and also emails and you refresh and participate in multiple discussions constantly and with ease you don't open a browser go to GS forum, open new tab, close GS forum, look for the other forum, log in go into the section you want, read, then you wonder if there's something new on GS, you open a new tab, close random forum, look for GS, sign in or look for the section you want and so on.

You get less accomplished multi-tasking because you don't focus on one thing and is slower=fail

OP is probably incapable of that.

You have to be pretty damn stupid to not get what this is all about and no, it's not about reading a book while cooking, on the toilet, writing an SMS and watching TV while listening to radio.

Grab a list of things to do on the net. For example: - Open a music strem - Download a YouTube Video - Read through a WikiPedia article etc etc Now, do that with one tab at a time and time how long it takes. Then, do it all at once with multiple tabs opened at once and time how long THAT takes. See what multitasking is?

If you do too many things at once, it takes longer to complete all those projects. Similar to a cpu, if you have to many things running at the same time, those programs run slower and your cpu isn't as effective. If you want to read through your mail, you don't watch tv, do sit-ups, play your games, and work on your homework at the same time do you? No, you focus on one thing, get it done, and move on to the next thing. It's a simple concept that you guys don't seem to understand. Einstein said "Make things as simple as you can, but no simpler". fnevaeva

(I don't know if ur trolling or not.)

If not, I am wondering how the hell you don't get run over by a car when you cross the road.

So all your life you've only done one thing at a time?

How the hell do you maintain a job even?

- I'm at work doing stuff and thinking about what to cook tonight

- I can be listening to music while doing push-ups

- I can be writing RIGHT NOW on this forum while music is playing and I have a file downloading.

Your sentence of "If you do too many things at once, it takes longer to complete all those projects." might apply to YOU cause you can't multi-task, but not to other people who can do it effectively.

And the CPU analogy? OMFG..... CPUs are meant for doing lots of things at once...why do you think they are multicore?

Do the TIME TEST I gave before and come back here and admit you are wrong.

This is so dumb.  Seriously, why troll PC games. Go back to system wars or OT where trolling is expected

Are you dumb? Don't you even know what multitasking means?

It still renders the cpu and makes it less effective on cpu heavy programs. Even if you have a multi-core cpu, it still wares on it. And, ADHD is actually your lack of ability to focus, which means doing multiple things at once makes it even harder and slower to accomplish things. I actually have ADHD, but I do believe that if we focus on something, we tend to Hyperfocus on that one thing and venture into the depths of our mind in which people without adhd can't. Not saying that everyone without adhd isn't capable of doing this. But there tends to be more people who can hyperfocus who have ADHD (which recently they changed the medical term to only ADHD to stand for both ADD and ADHD instead of have both seperate)

Well, you might suffer from that but I personally don't. 

I can do one thing and accomplish that one thing at 100%, and I also can do 5 things at a time and accomplish them at 100%. (I'm in IT, I'm used to it).

Hopefully you can learn to do various things at once, it does wonders with deadlines.

This. Trolling should be limited so SW and OT.

Uh ok I'll give a different example. Say I'm doing research for a project, and I've a read half of a long article on a single web page. I then need to look something else up. I open up a new tab and look for what I have to, all the while, the article I'm reading is still there in another tab. I'm not going to close that article, lose my spot and go do something else and then go all the way back to that article again. That is a waste of time. Sure, I would have to do that anyway if this was like 1999, but it's not. It's 2013, processors are powerful enough to handle many tabs at once with minimal slowdown. Unless your PC is old, multitasking isn't a problem, and actually allows you to do things faster. I always have at least two tabs open at once. One for a GS board and one for another forum I use. I simply keep them open and always there and when I want to I can very quickly go to them and refresh, browse for a few seconds and then go back to something else. You can keep facebook open with conversations going but do other things at the same time. Whatever. There are billions of different combinations and scenarios where you could have multiple tabs open. I'm sorry if you simply don't see it, or think it is a bad thing. Let me tell you, it is not a bad thing. At all. It actually saves lots of time. If I wanted to 'hyperfocus' on something, I will. But I rarely have to and therefore, keep multiple tabs open, though I'm not even sure if keeping one tab open only really helps your focus much, especially when it comes to trivial tasks such as posting on forums.

#45 Posted by yonyz (533 posts) -

There's a point to what the OP said, that multitasking doesn't always lead to "more stuff done faster". We don't actually do two or more things at once, but we do shift our focus from one to another pretty fast that it almost seems we're doing both at the same time. But as others have said, you can use multiple tabs to stream music and read something or whatever. It also looks nicer than multiple browser windows and I think for me it's faster to switch tabs compared to windows.
