Think of it as the fellowship of the ring, but instead of a fantasy world, it's just the web, and instead of characters it's tabs.
THIS IS GONNA BE A TRULY EPIC AND TOUCHING TALE


It all started 3 days ago when Firefox decided "**** you, I'm updating" (security reasons or some ******** like that) despite my reluctance to update because the support for one of my addons disappears in newer versions. That particular addon allowed me to unload tabs; making them load up only when I clicked on the tabs. It was very convenient, but as with many other convenient things I began to abuse it; constantly using it as a "read/watch later" function.
3 days ago I had approximately 1000 tabs open. Yes. A THOUSAND.
Then Firefox updated.
I opened my Firefox and EVERYTHING loaded up.
Among those tabs were almost 200 youtube videos and they all played simultaneously.
So Firefox pretty much slowed to a crawl. I'm surprised that the videos worked all at the same time, but switching tabs took AGES.
30minutes later I had to resort to shutting down Firefox because it simply got stuck.
But I figured that if I disconnected internet while the pages loaded they'd take much less resources.
And it worked.


This is my epic journey to less than 10 tabs.
My goal is to close at least 50 tabs a day.

I'll share some interesting stuff I find here.

Day 1 - ~200 down, 800 to go. BOOO~YAAAH!

People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m ****ing ******ed but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding." - Guuse

You should have just updated firefox and put those tabs in other groups. I have some groups with over 40 tabs that I haven't opened in months. I also use an addon called read it later that saves the link for later reading, sort of like a bookmark but easier to use, in case it's something more important or I don't feel like dragging pages around


The SC2 video was just.. awesome.

Day 5 done. I've been playing a lot of BLC :3

I.e: Mike Rogers doesn't think it's rape unless the victim knows (s)he has been raped. Sounds legit.
