less than 4, for the moment Nov 2, 2007

but I've only just come back to my desk after lunch, so it will no doubt increase to at least 10 as the afternoon wears on...

At the moment I have open the following:

1 bash terminal window (to run Omega T .jar)
2 Omega T work window
3 This mozilla window in which I am viewing proz (with 5 tabs open for various resources I use while working)
4 mozilla mail window
5 xmms window (playing catupecu machu, mana, los piojos, soda stereo, julieta venegas mix playlist)
6 kthesaurus window
7 konqueror window displaying the folder containing the project on which I am working

Too many Nov 2, 2007

Right now I am counting 3 tabs in one browser window, 4 tabs in a second browser window plus 7 other windows.

This is my normal average

I love tabs on Firefox! I reckon each application appears more clearly on the task bar this way.

more than 10 Nov 2, 2007

if you include tabs.
That's why I love tab navigation browsers!

4 windows Nov 2, 2007

Three email accounts and this one. No doubt I'll open at least two more during the day.

Unclear Nov 2, 2007

The question is unclear to me. There's "windows/tabs" so I presumed it's about a browser (browser tabs or browser windows, depending on browser type), but here I can see people naming different programs. However I woulnd't call having opened 5 different programs as "tabs".

At the moment of voting I had opened 3 tabs (now 4, to reply to the poll), and 5 other windows of other soft (or 4, as 2 are windows of Konqueror).

Vote? Nov 2, 2007

Vote seems to be the wrong word here, and in fact I would not really call this a poll.
Totally boring.

4 at the moment Nov 3, 2007

This is my minimum number. However, I usually have 1 for my mail, 1 for proz, 1 for an online dictionary, 2 for the documents I am translating (when I don't use a CAT tool), 1 for YM, and 1 for another forum in Tagalog which I browse everytime I get bored and need to take a break.

I couldn't agree more. I like the quick polls very much and "vote" regularly (to be honest, it's the first thing I do after logging in at proz.com in the morning). This "poll" is totally silly.

Have a nice day,

I agree with Anni. I have voted 7-10 as I thought the question referred to the browser only, otherwise I definitely have always more than 10! (often even within the browser itself, but I do try to limit that).

I don't think the poll is silly, I have actually often wondered why people do not use more windows, I think having all you need within reach is much handier than opening and closing applications and windows all the time! The poll results confirm what I have heard so far from friends and collegues.
