Middle Mouse Button Magic!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

So there I was, taking advantage of the precious few moments I get to spend at home these days; catching up on my e-mail, and using Firefox to browse a few websites I consider daily staples. I found out awhile ago that if I created folders for all of my favorite bookmarked sites that I could access them without scrolling down through all the “in-betweeners” that I use every great once in awhile. This made my web browsing prep time a little more streamlined in that I could open a few tabs (Ctrl-T), rattle off some mouse clicks and be information bound in no time at all. Good stuff, or so I thought…

Well, last night I was going through my routine and I accidentally clicked the middle mouse button (the scroll wheel) over a folder containing my daily sites. Lo, and to my utter astonishment, the entire contents of the folder sprang to life in my browser window; each with it’s own tab! I just shaved about a minute and a half off of my browsing preparation time! Thanks Firefox!

Okay, maybe I was a bit quick to put all my praise on Mozilla’s browsing beastie. In truth, Internet Explorer is capable of the exact same thing. I just happen to like Firefox better! 😉

Give it a try! Just make sure you don’t have a million bookmarks in the folder you click on. That may result in a little more than your browser (or PC) can handle!
