HALF-a-dozen tabs open? I didn't think we had that many slackers around here.
I often keep 4 to 10 tabs open. I'll scroll down the messageboard and open every thread I want to read in its own new tab, then close them as I read them.
I haven't been reading the web fiction though, and putting it in the main blog likely isn't going to make me start, just because I don't like reading stories online.
I do look forward to the Pathfinder Tales short story print compilation though, should such ever see publication.
