Do opening tabs slow down your computer ?

I have a slow computer that takes a while to close my program.

I heard opening lots of programs at the same time slow down your computer.

I use Mozilla firefox, and i open tabs instead of opening windows. Does that also slow down your computer if you use too many tabs ?

    Yes..even if u open new window,it;ll take up ur system memory(RAM). The more u open them(tab or window) the more ur memory will b consumed.Hence slows down the pc.

    yes it does, because the tab is basicly another page that is used but it doesn’t use as much power as a full page so i would do it.

    Coincidentally, it doesn’t use as much memory as opening a whole new window each time, but the tabs -do- add up.

    Your computer will slow down eventually.

    To fix this, take your tower to a computer shop and say you’d like to upgrade your RAM, don’t act stupid, and it’ll cost you no more than $30 to have 2-3 times more memory, allowing you many many tabs, windows, programs, and faster loading times.

    I can open about 40 tabs in Firefox without hassle, and that’s while listening to music, studying eBooks, chatting on msn and downloading movies…you didn’t hear that last one!

    Good luck.

    Yes can cause slow down. Due to your memory have a lot of application programs to hold, So all the spaces was all used by the opened application

    Using multiple tabs is okay, but if you have an older computer with a limited amount of memory, try to close tabs you aren’t using.

    The real solution is to close programs that you aren’t using.

    It does. But only a bit.
    But there are a lot of things that can slow down your computer, like having lots of junk files, too many startup items, fragmented hard drive, and of course viruses and other malware. Try running some cleaning/optimizing software like Auslogics BoostSpeed (, defrag your hard drive, run a virus/spyware scan. Also, if you have low RAM, upgrade it.

    Yes, if you open a tone of tabs it will slow it down. But I believe you should be able to use your computer however you like, so why don’t you try some other things to speed it up that will allow you to open all of your tabs you love so much in a speedy fashion.

    If you have no virus issues, try this:

    1) Delete any unused or unnecessary programs and files. These may be taking up space, memory and resources, thus slowing your computer. Also delete your cashe/ temp files, empty your recycle bin, clear your internet browsing history, etc.

    2) Check your memory, how much do you have left? If its less than 15% get some more

    3) Defrag your hard drive. Fragmentation severely degrades the speed, performance and reliability of your computer. Try Diskeeper 2008, you can download 30-day trial-ware at

    4) Registry cleaner: Your registry holds all the information regarding updates, installs, uninstalls etc. so this needs to be cleaned. This will optimize and remove redundant or unwanted items.
