I use to have hundreds of bookmarks, but in past years I came to realize I only ever look at maybe 10 sites if that. It's basically whatever is in the toolbar. If your not in the toolbar I don't frankly don't care. Anyone else notice stuff like that? I'm going to go to these couple websites and if there is nothing new on them, I am done with the internet until there is.
You know, they say we can only use 10% of our internet.
That's not true, we subconsciously use the rest for all our bodily functions.
I would say I'm getting better and better at using more sites. I used to visit about 5-10 sites regularly and it kind of bothered me so I try to change it up. If I'm interested in a particular subject there's a big chance that there's a whole community somewhere specialized in that subject.
Hey, are you interested in jackets from TV and movies. www.filmjackets.com It's a site. About jackets. In films.
I have no clue how many sites there are on the internet in totalt so I'm not sure how much of it I'm using by visiting Giant Bomb, Gamespot and whatever else site I decide to look at.
Now let me tell you, If we were talking data caps then oooh boy.... This is gonna get... hahahahaha, no, I couldn't even get that written down with a straight face. I refuse to give money to any company that decides to cap how much data I could download, fucking nonsense.
Lets see... Two webcomics -Penny Arcade and Goblins- four gaming sites -bluesnews.com, pcgamer.com, rockpapershotgun.com, giantbomb.com- two local news sites -the section for news in my province and the technology section of cbc.ca- and gmail. Those are the sites that I open up and check several times a day. So 9.
Other then that, I will check my subs on youtube for stuff to watch when I get really bored, my banking sites to pay bills, roll20.net to DM my weekly game of Dungeons and Dragons, and a about 30-40 different porn sites divided in my bookmarks by fetish depending on what I'm in the mood for at that time. I will also load twitch from time to time to watch Rollplay or the official Dungeons and Dragons kind of weekly show that they do, but I'm never sure when they stream so I never get to watch them live and usually just watch them on youtube when they archive them there later.
If we're talking about the World Wide Web, only a couple dozen sites with any sort of regularity, I'd guess. Mostly webcomics, youtube, and Giant Bomb, but occasionally Newegg or Amazon for shopping and the occasional article linked from elsewhere.
Outside of the web, there's playing games online, streaming stuff from Netflix, downloading games through steam or console services.
Probably between 5-10 on a daily basis. I feel like it was more exciting to "surf" a decade ago than it is now. I've tried things like StumbleUpon to try and discover cool new stuff, but it's not the same as the glory days of dial-up and Geocities websites about 80's hair metal bands.
That's what the internet was in 2002, right?
I've never had a lot book marked. 10 at the most... and even then most of them are work sites. Stuff I need to fix bad files and stuff like that... Now that I think of it... I want a computer with nothing but porn sites book marked and for it to be always torrenting... stealing and what not... (I work on computer and have to fix people dumb downloads all the time. Now I just want to see the world burn.)
