Less is more.
Call me old-fashioned but I tend to think things get done better if I do them one at a time. I don't usually have more than 2 or 3 open at once, as I find it clutters up my toolbars.

You caught me as I was closing down Oct 16, 2011

I had just closed everything down for the night here in California when I decided to see if a new poll had been posted, so it's just one.

Usually my maximum is 6 to 8 between Firefox and IE. More than that gets confusing, so I close up and start over again.

If I'm searching terms, I may go up to as many as 15 terms behind the one I'm currently looking at.

Agree! I only have one now but I'd have at least 10 on a normal weekday.

A dictionary, google, an EMA-template, a radioplayer (classical radio for background music...) and the ProZ poll

I have the same 5 language ones that never get closed and always stay in the same order. Might have more depending on the project I'm on, but as others have said, it's Sunday morning, so...

Since I'm off today, I only have those 5 tabs open that are never closed.
When I'm working it somtimes turns out to be up to 8 or 9 tabs.

Usually it's more like 4, but I've been creating a glossary.

This poll should have been on a weekday for everyone Oct 17, 2011

2 now, but I'm not working. Anywhere from 6 (standard) to 10, depending on the text. If you count other windows for tm, cat tool, text, etc, then 8 is closer to normal.
