Information Overload

I use Opera as my primary web browser and email program. I just love it! One of the great features of Opera is the way it remembers what web pages you had open, so whatever you were doing, you can mostly just pick up and go the next time you go into it. The picture below shows what can happen when you’re interested in many things… a lot of times I find a page that looks interesting but I don’t have time right then to look at it or act on it, so I just leave it open, intending to go back and do something. I counted 48 open tabs in this screen shot (click on it for a larger version):

The irony is the middle tab in the pic! See the red O? That’s an article from Oprah.com on Information Overload. Well, at least I can close that one now. :)
