As a work at home Mama, I try to manage my time well. I’m not always successful but it’s always wonderful to find tools that could make working at home easier. It is not always easy as I tend to have routines that eat up time. An obsessive compulsive, I believe, that I couldn’t seem to shake off.
I have a step-by-step habit that needs to be done when I’m online. It differs when I am surfing, blogging, working on each client, etc. A group of sites need to be opened along with each task. It was a brilliant move when tabs where introduced into browsing some years ago. Apparently, a lot of users do open a number of sites at one time.
This is where the Sessions feature of the Opera browser comes very handy. I can switch from task to task without having to open each site. I know that you can always Bookmark a website to keep it but Sessions can keep a group of websites in memory. For example, when I’m working on a client, I need my email, Google docs, a number of sites for the client opened at the same time. The sites differ when I’m working for another client, doing research, surfing,
shopping, blogging, link building, etc. The Sessions feature can save a number links for the websites you need for a task. You can open all of these links in a separate window with each link in a tab – in one single step. How easy is that?
There are a few other issues that I do not like about using the Opera browser but I could live with it for the time being because Sessions is making it so much easier for me. I just hope it doesn’t take them too long to fix these issues.
What’s your browser? Have you tried Opera?
