    What's the most browser windows you've had open at once?

    I got up to around 760 Firefox windows under Tiger. Then it
    crashed :)

    I love testing the limits like this.

    Too tiring lol :)

    This is what I have so far (for Safari this time):

    Code:
    tell application "System Events"
    	tell application process "Safari"
    		click menu item "New Window" of menu "File"
    	end tell
    end tell
    I haven't tested it yet, but that'll do one window, I think.
    So Just another 759 to go then :)

    Ok, the previous script was rubbish.
    This one is better and seems to work:

    Code:
    delay 4
    
    tell application "Safari"
    	activate
    end tell
    
    tell application "System Events"
    	tell process "Safari"
    		repeat 200 times
    			click menu item "New Window" of menu "File" of menu bar 1
    		end repeat
    	end tell
    end tell
    That's for 20 windows.

    If you want to try it, you'll need "Enable access for assistive devices"
    selected in the Universal Acesss preference pane.

    Hmm... I seem to have some issues. I just had 200 Safari windows
    open and now Firefox has got into some weird state in which it is
    not visible and unquittable. I think the Dock is feeling ill.

    I opened 260 Safari windows and expose choked... It wouldn't show all of them and was very stuttery.
