What’s in YOUR browser?

My wife can’t figure out what I do online for hours at a time. I can’t blame her for being confused. Sometimes I don’t even know how so much time can go by before I get out of this chair and do something besides attempt to contract cancer from my monitor.

I thought it might be interesting to take a look at what I’ve got open in my browser right now and see if that can provide some answers. Strap in… I’ve got over 40 tabs open at the moment.

Well, that’s it. Many of those are intended to be the topics of blog posts (a good percentage of which won’t see the light of day). Some are work related. A few are just for fun. Some have been open for weeks, as I keep procrastinating whatever task I have that relates. All of them are interesting to me in one way or another.

Here’s what I take from this list: I’m interested in many topics, and procrastinate a lot. Most of my attention seems to be focused on money management and technology.

What’s open in your browser? (Other than this site, of course.) What does it say about you?

  • Not much open today. :)

    My blog, a couple of other blogs, a website which lists the 100 Maori words every New Zealander should know and how to pronounce them.

    I am a YouTube addict and can happily spend an evening on there. There is usually imdb.com and wikipedia open as well. Movie addict and homeschooler here.

    Hmmm, what would it say about me? I don’t know.

    Well, what it tells me about you is that you’re a blog reader who lives in NZ (or visits there), and enjoys self-educating and entertainment, and doesn’t mind doing it physically alone, though it seems you gravitate towards community-minded sites.

    That you don’t have as many tabs open as I do tells me that it’s quite possible that I have less of a life than you… ;)
