TONS OF TABS

    I currently have a screaming fast dual operton system with 2gb ram, windows
    xp pro sp2 and my system usually never lags. I tried opening 500 tabs in IE
    to see how it would handle the tabs when it runs out of space. Firefox has no
    method to scroll through its tabs after you've reached a full screens width
    of tabs, so I wanted to see if IE had a simular problem. Well the problem
    seems to be worse with ie on my system as it seems to severely lag when i
    reach 45 or so tabs, each of them load about:blank as to not use a ton of
    resources rendering out the pages. The quick tab window takes a good 5
    minutes to display. Is this a design flaw or specific to my configuration?
    does anyone else have this issue?

    i realize you can use ctrl+tab to navigate forward and ctrl+shift+tab to
    navigate the tabs backwards, but there is no method other than continuously
    clicking the far left or right tab to iterate through the collection.
