I have a huge problem that involves not closing tabs, so by 2-3 hours I'll usually have 25+ tabs open, and I was just wondering how many others also had this same problem.

I don't know how you can even manage 25+.

Usually only a couple, but when I'm doing research and writing a paper things can get really messy.

Yeah, I've got that same- well, it's not really a problem, but I do the same thing. I'm not going to be an asshole and claim I have "ADD," but yes, I'll read a little in one tab, something will catch my eye or pop into my head, so I'll open another tab and before I know it, there are dozens of tabs open spread across a few browser windows.

...I wouldn't have it any other way. Why is this a problem for you?

Not 25+, but it gets up there and I don't close them for a while. At some point I just made a bookmark dedicated to tabs I've closed but am not quite done with.

2-4, maybe. Anytime I visit a wiki of any sort, though, it gets real real crazy, and I may have 15+ or so open.

I'm fucking terrible for it. Probably about 30 across 3 different browser windows at any given time.

Just browsing around: 1-4 (for some reason I hate having to hit back, so I almost always ctrl+shift+click stuff like forum threads, then close when done)

Research mode: anywhere from 5-15+

Also, I'm quite anal about closing unnecessary tabs.

I often separate them out for videos and soon find three windows with 2-3

4-5, I get up to a dozen or so sometimes when I'm lazy or if I have to right click a bunch of links in unison.

SO MANY TABS. Sometimes though they will all end up closed, but soon after somehow a million more tabs. I usually end up opening links in new tabs because I'm not done with whatever was in the original tab, but then that one stays open as I run around the internet like one of those episodes of Scooby Doo where they're all running through doors in a hallway and no one knows how they ended up anywhere.

I count 5 right now. I sometimes have more open, but that's usually when I'm doing research for my graphic design stuff.

Depends on whether or not I've taken a dive into TVTropes again.

Usually, though, two or three, maybe a few more. My forum habits often involve me scrolling through, middle clicking all of the ones I'm interested in, posting in half of them, closing the rest, checking the main page of forums again, and then moving on.

At home, I don't usually have more than 10.

At work, with the use of tab groups in Firefox, I've had over 60.

@animasta: Get an add-on to scrunch them into one tab with a list. I'm also a tab-a-holic, and One Tab saved my RAM. It's an extension (chrome user) and I don't think there's a Firefox copy, but there's gotta be something out there. Just open another tab and search! ;)

2-4 usually, and around 10 during crazy link-following sessions that happen more often than is healthy. I only have 2GB of RAM (I know, I know... I'm piecemealing a new machine as I type), so I can't go TOO wild.

way too many.

Often times I'll have more than one window open with 6 or more tabs in each.

Anywhere from 10-30. I lose track of things I have opened when I need something quick for work so I just pop open a new tab and go.

I have 3 or 4 tabs open usually. I almost always have Giantbomb and Facebook open so that's a guaranteed 2.

When I'm working, I sometimes have like four different browser windows with 10 tabs each on average.

I used to be a lot better about spreading them out over workspaces and stuff but I still go a little overboard having billions of tabs open, especially if I'm testing stuff or doing web development. Even when I'm not I can easily hit 20 before I realize I should probably start closing tabs.

Opening 5 tabs is pushing it most of the time unless when I'm doing research.

2-6, though it can go well beyond that in to the 20's on some occasions (valid reasons for doing so too). I usually have about 6 desktop applications running too, though I spend most of my time dealing with news and apps in the browser. Some web applications are much more reliable than their desktop equivalents, for example Google Calendar > OSX Calendar, or gmail > mail.

If it's ever more than one, it only goes up to three (usually, maybe four), but is often two if it isn't the usual one.

Like 5 maximum. I don't know how people can have so many tabs open all at once. Chrome takes up so much fucking memory.

usually no more than 4 or 5, most of the time 2 or 3. I'll keep one for radio, one for facebook sometimes, and one or 2 for whatever I am looking at.
