    i wanted to know from people here what is the quickest and an easy way to surf in a Mac, Multiple Tab Browsing or Multiple windows browsing. Which one is more fast and convenient.

    Also I was wondering if there was an APP which lets me switch between tabs by a one finger or a two finger click.

    Please suggest Guys !

    Hello,

    I'm not sure how to answer this, as it's mostly a preference matter. I suppose most people would argue that tabs are more convenient, but I guess separate windows with Mission Control could be fairly quick to navigate also.

    I don't know what you mean by "an APP which lets me switch between tabs by a one finger or two finger click." Like, a mouse? Pressing a trackpad? o_O

    Try things out and see what you like better, and keep mission control in mind.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes there are APPS which enable you to switch between tabs by click of one finger on the Trackpad, I had such an APP in my mind but unfortunately can't remember it right now !!

    There are also human extremities available such as hands and fingers, as well as gravity and pressure sensing which allows a user to drag a cursor over a tab and click it ... with one finger.

    But then isn't Tab Browsing a little cumbersome ?

    Isn't having multiple windows of the same browser cumbersome?

    For most, but I could see someone preferring it when used with Mission Control, which would provide a layout of pages (images rather than cut off text in a small tab).

    I always use tabs personally and find them easy to organize but I have seen users that are skilled within the OS that have been crazy productive with the use of App Launcher, Mission Control, and other various keyboard shortcuts.

    That isn't an acronym.

    But anyway, tabbed browsing is the way to go and I can't imagine anyone preferring multiple windows these days.
