New tab and browser
Using the program to view Internet pages, you can not do without creating new tabs and windows. For example, when searching for any product in chain stores, it is very convenient to open the corresponding sites in separate browser pages and compare characteristics simply by switching between them. Or chat with friends, being simultaneously in several social networks. Examples of mass.
When using browsers, users have two ways to display information on the screen: creating new tabs or windows. It is also allowed to combine these two solutions.A tab is an interface element, usually located at the top of the window of a running network surfing application. Thanks to it, you can perform parallel browsing of Internet resources, switching between open pages. In fact, we are talking about the original bookmarks, or, if you like, paragraphs in the book.
How to use the function
A new tab can be opened by pressing the Ctrl + T hot key combination or using the mouse to presson the active area at the top of the window. The second display mode is to use windows. That is, the combination Ctrl + N will open the initial page, in which work with tabs can be continued. Almost the same thing happens when you launch another copy of the browser. Accordingly, the first window is fully preserved.Switching between them is a little more difficult - via Ctrl + Tab. A feature of the use of hot keys is the fact that a new tab or window opens regardless of the settings made in the browser configuration. Just as the developer intended. A new tab of Firefox versions up to 3.xx can be opened in the following ways: select the File item in the menu at the top of the window and select the appropriate command using the mouse or the keyboard cursor; Place the cursor on the Windows system taskbar (bottom of the screen), select the image of the launched browser and click the right mouse button on it. A dialog will appear where you can make a choice of actions. For example, in Firefox, a new tab can be opened by clicking on the command of the same name in the “Tasks” section.
When using the Taskbar, you need to remember that the list of output commands is greatly influenced by the version, bit depth and the name of the installed browser. For example, in this way a new Chrome 39.0.h.h tab can be opened, at the same time there are simply no commands for the window there. In the twin brother "Chrome" - the browser Iron, all exactly the opposite.In addition, in recent versions of Firefox, the top menu is not displayed by default. You can make it appear by pressing the Alt button. The menu displayed via the "Taskbar" is also affected by the operating system. Thus, although this method is efficient, it is not unified, and it is difficult to recommend it to everyone.
Depending on the adjustments made to the browser, with the pages being opened it behaves differently. So, having given the “New Tab” command, the user can immediately switch to it or remain on the viewed resource, and the uploading of a new one will occur in the background. You can switch to it at any time. By default, most browsers use the first approach, but it can be changed.Is that in the "Chrome" the developers did not consider it necessary to allow users to change something - there this setting is strictly prescribed and standard means are not adjusted. But in Firefox, you need to select the "Tools" menu item, proceed to "Settings" and click "Tabs". The last entry is the enable / disable auto switch. It is activated by a tick. Just as easy to make adjustments to the work of Internet Explorer. It should open the path "Service - Properties - Tabs - Options", where you can select the desired items.
Memory does not happen much
Many users set up their favorite browser in this way, that after launching it starts to open many tabs. Not the fastest access, at which the actual loading of data from resources does not occur until the direct indication from the user. There is exactly one-time access to multiple web pages. In some cases this is convenient, but you need to understand that each new tab “eats away” a part of the RAM and CPU time, which ultimately leads to a general slowdown in work.The Chrome browser is particularly susceptible to this.in which developers, in order to increase reliability, implemented a special mechanism for working with tabs, for each of which a separate block of memory is allocated. It is believed that if, due to an error, a hang occurs on any page, then it can be easily localized by simply closing the “problem” resource. In this case, the rest will remain in the work. In fact, as is always the case, everything is beautiful only on paper, and life makes its own adjustments, and one should not expect miracles from the declared technology.
How to choose a program for internet surfing
Selecting a browser, we recommend that you check the use of RAM without fail. This will require "Chrome" and any other "candidate" that must be running. Of course, when using add-ons, you need to understand that each of them takes up part of the RAM, so the comparison should take place in equal conditions. In the address bar "Chrome" you need to type chrome: // memory-redirect. A window will appear, the upper part of which will show the memory usage of each browser. By opening new tabs in each of them and clicking "Refresh", you can monitor changes in real time.Regardless of the decision made, this check shows that each tab or window increases the amount of RAM occupied by the browser, so you must always close the “extras” during operation. For this is the image of a cross in the title or a combination of buttons Ctrl + W.
