My Geek Cred Is Faltering Because Of Browser Tabs

My geek cred (such as it is) is faltering; I have realized I don't use enough browser tabs. When reading blogs and forums I come across a lot of people who seem to habitually run with dozens of tabs open in their browser. Here is one person with over 200

I rarely have more than 8 or 10 tabs open at a time, usually more like 3 or 4.

Even assuming some of these browser fiends are just posturing blowhards, there still seems to be a lot of folks running lot of tabs - and I am not one of them. I have tried and tried to think what might demand that one keeps so many web pages available at once, and I can't imagine. It must be some deep, geeky thing of which I am not aware, and hence my faltering geek cred.
