Last week we asked you to take a look at your browser and tell us how many tabs you had open at that very minute. Going into this poll, I was naïve. The largest number I gave was 20+, without even imagining the possibility of some users having over 1000 open tabs at once. Therefore, if you want to be amazed at some incredible tab feats, I recommend reading the comments to last week’s poll. But for now, let’s look at those results:
Out of 795 votes in total, this was the breakdown: 5% of the voters had just 1 tab open when they answered the poll; 5.5% had 16-20 tabs open; 13% had 11-15 tabs open; 20% had more than 20 tabs open; 27.5% had 6-10 tabs open; and 29% of the voters had 2-5 tabs open in their browser on that minute. No clear winner, and an impressive one fifth of the voters with more than 20 tabs!
In case you’re curious, I have 20 tabs open myself right at this minute, spread over 3 windows.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Bill, who told us about his 1750 currently open tabs, and what he does to keep them tame. He won a MakeUseOf t-shirt of his choice! Lucky him.
This week’s poll question is: Are You Sad About Steve Ballmer Retiring?
I thought long and hard about this week’s poll, but at the end realized that I simply had no choice. This week’s poll just had to be about Steve Ballmer. Whether you love it or hate it, Microsoft is a company that changed the way we use computers, and made the tech world all the more interesting for its rivalry with Apple. Steve Ballmer has been an icon of this company for more years than I care to remember, and one of the most controversial figures in the tech world throughout. Is his retirement good for Microsoft? Is it only downhill from here? We know what the world thinks, it’s now time to hear from you.
Do share your thoughts about this in the comments, what is this going to mean for Microsoft? We’d love to hear what you think!
