Want to know what’s the best part with this new addition?
It cuts down on the amount tabs open in my web browser!
To me, it’s brilliant. I’ve got a couple of WordPress sites split over three installs, using multi-sites to power them. Most of them doesn’t need daily attention but some do. Logging in and out is annoying, and if I’m actually working on something for these sites I end up having the admin interfaces open, along with the sites themselves in case I need to check something out real quick. Add any tab open for research purposes and you’ve got quite a crowded web browser, and we all know what that means, right? Memory leaks, annoying loading balls, and a sluggish performance, assuming the browser just won’t crash on you.
The WordPress admin bar won’t remedy this altogether, but since everything is a lot more accessible I’ve already found that I’m cutting down on tabs open (yes, I’m running the RC). Lovely, just plain lovely.
