Really Interesting Crap In My Browser Tabs: Poor Man’s Del.icio.us

September 29th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I usually keep 40-50 tabs open in my browser for review when I find things worthy of review. What usually happens is the damn thing memory leaks, implodes and I lose a bunch of good stuff.  Here’s my uber-optimized and virtualized solution to this problem.  Post ‘em here:

There’s more, but this is a good list.

    Strangely I can relate. Some tabs I keep open for weeks or longer. I'd die without Firefox's "restart previous session" option.

    Hoff, I've been in the same boat. I had taken to having several Firefox windows open, each loaded with tabs of related content. While FFox is 99% reliable, I have taken a love to two addons that help with link backups / replication and tab management. For links, I use xmarks, and end up getting all the faves on any machine I log into ( and there are many ). Works in Safari and FFox. Probably IE too. ( cloud! go figure! )

    For tab management, I recently discovered the TabGroupS Manager FFox addon. really really good. And all tabs, once organized under the "master tabs", are recalled after FFox restart, just as they should be. Now the best part is you can "hibernate" groups of tabs, and you can drag groups of tabs to new FFox windows. Really good.

    What would make TabGroupsManager unbeatable would be to team with xmarks and sync to the cloud. Not happening yet, but it would seem a worthy feature request.

    Hoff, another option is Read It Later. http://readitlaterlist.com/firefox/

    Thought i was alone with the habit of having multiple tabs open for later (sometimes weeks) and losing some! it looks like a universal problem.

    Somehow after switching to Chrome i am managing to lose less :-) now again seriously contemplating of moving to Firefox w/read-it-later extension… thanks to Virgil's tip.

    try Tab Mix Plus http://tmp.garyr.net/
    I use it to improve functions for my tabs, & it has a better crash option then the basic.

    Also I can save sessions, so if I close a window with many tabs open it it will save a copy.

    I tend to crash about 100+ tabs (I open links in new tabs & close them as I read them)
