My great accomplishment yesterday was reducing the number of open tabs in my browser from 168 to 92.

I’ve read a lot of tab complaints like this over the years, but I’ve never quite understood them. Once you open up more than 20 or 30 tabs, there’s not enough screen space to identify them even with a tiny icon (see below). So they’re completely blank. Do people keep opening up tabs anyway, even though they’re just tiny slivers that are totally unidentifiable? Or do they use add-ins of some kind that allow you to open lots of tabs but still retain some kind of minimal ID?

Just curious. Somehow I always feel like I’m missing something obvious when I read someone blogging or tweeting about this.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
