Too Many Tabs Open?
If you’re computer seems to be a lot slower while surfing the Internet compared to when it was new, the problem could be you and not the computer!
A game changer in browser technology that’s taken for granted today is the ability to open multiple tabs instead of having to manually navigate back and forth within on window.
The downside to this awesome feature is that most of us open tabs and leave them open, even though we don’t need them anymore.
Each open tab takes memory, which taken to the extreme can be a big burden on your computer.
A simple way to help speed things up is to start closing the website tabs you no longer need…remember, you can always use your History to get back to them.
Everything you use on your computer, not just the web is impacted by this unnecessary use of valuable memory.
If having lots of tabs open is important, checkout an add-on called One Tab for the Chrome browser.
Once installed, it converts all your open tabs to one single tab with a table of contents for what was open.
It’s a more efficient way of having quick access to your important websites without the memory burden.
