I love Firefox, don’t get me wrong. But what usually happens is I have about 15 tabs left at the end of the day, pages I want to blog about or add to del.icio.us or something. Since it’s Friday, I gotta shut down this machine, so here are some links to what’s still open on my screen:
Thus the decision that will impact the Internet. A rich and rational (and publicly traded) company may be tempted to compromise – to pay for the “right” that it and others should get for free, just to avoid the insane cost of defending that right. Such a company is driven to do what’s best for its shareholders. But if Google gives in, the loss to the Internet will be far more than the amount it will pay publishers. It will be a bad compromise for everyone working to make the Internet more useful – and for everyone who will ultimately use it.

If you go into Bloglines, click on My Feeds and scroll down to the bottom of the left hand frame, you’ll see a link called “Tell a friend”. Clicking on it allows you to enter in a list of email addresses and to pick among blogs you currently subscribe to. It will send out an email with a link to bloglines that will allow someone to register a new account at bloglines prepopulated with your chosen blogs!

You should take a look at the Opera browser… When you shut down, then reopen, it gives you the option of opening all the tabs you had open the last time you ran Opera…
Or get the SessionSaver extension for FireFox:
If you quite the Fox with 15 tabs open, the next launch will bring ’em back (will also do the same, or close, if the browser goes south on you).
While you are at it, get Tab-x.. it adds a close box to each tab, easier than command=W-ing

Ugh… I actually am glad that from time to time, I have to shut down Firefox and not get around to reading everything. I’ve got about 11 articles waiting to be read right now. I’m suffering from information overload a bit.

I have the exact same problem. I do use Session Saver (which someone else already reccomended), but to be honest, sometimes it just perpetuates the habit of keeping things ‘bookmarked’ by leaving them in tabs. Too much good stuff to read and write about. As I write this, I have two browser windows open with 12 tabs between the two of them.
Wonderful problem to have, eh?
